I have the Vega Pro 50 on a Grizzly 1023Z that I am rehabbing. The parts are well made for the price and some people have complained about the finishing but it is adequate for what I paid for it. I did have to fabricate some mounts to get it to mount correctly to my saw as that was easier than drilling and tapping the cast iron tables. One other modification that I saw was to reverse the locking handle so that locking the fence pushed the back of the fence down and not up. I like this idea but have not done it yet. I have no experience with a Biesemeyer but the Vega is night and day better than the Shop Fox that was on the saw when I bough it.
