Shop Fox Power tools


Does anyone own Shop Fox Tools ? Are they pretty good quality, worse , better or the same as Grizzly. I know there are much better tools out there, I can't justify spending thousands of dollars for a woodworking hobby. Thanks

Shop Fox and Grizzly are actually owned by the same guy...Shiraz Balolia. They are separate business, but many of the machines are similar or identical....though be aware that some are also completely different. The two businesses use a different retail approach...Griz is mail order with a one year warranty, SF has dealers and a 2 year warranty. You should find the quality of either to be pretty good value overall, and suitable for both serious hobby work and light commercial use.
