Check with someone like Utterguys out of Florida or go on the Woodstock International website and take a look at the Steelex and Shop Fox branded units. They’re both basically Grizzly machines and Woodstock International is owned by the same man who owns Grizzly. These two brands are made for retail/online sales from other companies. Generally speaking, the Shop Fox version of a similar model to Grizzly tends to be a little higher end with a couple extra bells and whistles added.

When Grizzly was out of their 2 HP hybrid tablesaw, I bought the Shop Fox version from utterguys.com and got a machine with an extra extension table. Utterguys had them in stock and I received it fairly quickly. Some links:

Utterguys links to each jointer. You can email them for available stock if they’re reasonably close to you, they’re in Florida, I am in Georgia, so they’re a good fit. Their response to inquiries was quick. They also offer a couple other Pacific Rim brands:
