I was looking at the Shop Fox just yesterday at a local hardware store. Looks solidly built. I am tempted to get it; but, I am also tempted by the Grizzly G0555LX. Never seen the Delta one you are comparing, so I can t tell you which I would choose. Nice thing about the Shop Fox for me is that it is stocked in a local hardware store.

The grizzly GO555LX is on sale right now for $525. Not in stock though. Comes in around mid May.

Thanks. I saw that. Makes it very tempting. I know the Grizzly price doesn t include shipping; but, the Shop Fox at the local hardware store is $730.00.

- Hockey

$725.94 with a mobile base after shipping and lift gate service.

Has a 6” riser block available for purchase as well. Comes with a fence and miter gauge.

I couldn’t pass it up.
