Correct me if I am wrong, but Shop Fox is the brand that grizzly sells to retail outlets. They are usually just slightly different. Sometimes have some increased capcity over its Grizzly counterpart. They are also more expensive than Grizzly. The advantage I can see to shop fox over grizzly is, if you buy a Shop fox locally you can make sure it is in good shape from shipping. I, and several friends had problems with damage during shipment from Grizzly.
I have heard that they have adressed that with the way they pack, but I had a bad experience 15 years ago and have elected to not buy them any more…..although they have some very resonably priced metal lathes….hmmm…...
