Hi

First don’t get me wrong i like this dp model T20833 it was in the grizzly catalog. When i got it found out it was from shop fox i didn’t care had it 2 months used it a few times works great. My question is are shop fox and grizzly the same?

I posted a question a week or so back about wolfcraft router tables. 6155 router center 670 model is the one i’m looking at. It has built in templets for lining up dovetail box and finger joints.

No response so far?

Hey Jim
Shop fox and Grizzly are made by Grizzly but not always the same tool . It’s like buying a Chevy or GMC pick up truck There both made my General Motors but have some distinction between the two.
As far as getting responses about your router table question usually you will get more responses if your a little less specific or offer a photo or printed specs on The item your thinking about. other wise folks might not respond unless the have that model in then maybe not. I know I have a grizzly planner and counter but I’ll be darn if I remeber the model number. There are many others that are better in that department.

Jim
The Shop Fox is usually the more expensive of the two sometimes because they may only offer a particular product under the shop fox name and not through Grizzly such as the 26” drum sander I purchased from them a couple of years ago.
