I too am considering the oliver 4016 & the new unisaw,The oliver is made in tiawan and the unisaw in the US.
The oliver looks Like the Grizzly but it ends there. The oliver has a heavier trunion, and a heavy cast iron base,
The table boards on the grizzly are made from MDF I was told by an oliver rep. that the oliver table boards are
somekind of plastic composit which is much more durable than MDF.also the oliver comes with A 5HP motor.
And from what I can find out the the blade hight & tilt works a lot easier and smoother on the 4016

I have not made my mind up yet still gathering info.
