I can't help you too much. I haven't used accura equipment but I did a lot of research on them. They seem to be comparable to grizzly, maybe jet as far as quality goes.

They are a smaller company I believe so personally I would probably go with grizzly instead. Not because I think grizzly is better quality, I think they are about the same. But grizzly has great service and has a large stock of replacment parts. So even if initial quality was a little better with accura, I would go with grizzly because eventually you will need replacement parts.

If you want some more accuracy, go with powermatic or if you have a little more cash xtrema.
