I don’t know how it works but I wish I did. It is hard to say w/ machines that have identical castings but wildly diverging prices. There are lot of things that us consumers are kept in the dark about. A lot of things w/ machinery can’t be seen like bearing quality, arbor runout, motor quality, etc., are these things that Baileigh attends to and the others do not? Or maybe it works something like this, a machine comes through and is rejected by Baileigh, does it then get painted green and sold as Grizzly or if rejected by Grizzly then get a Central Machinery sticker? These are very valid questions that manufacturers do their best to keep us in the dark about. They would rather try get us to buy on the basis of paint color than any real knowledge about quality vs price that rational consumers seek.
