There have been some lengthy discussions over on the Sawmill Creek Woodworking website about this lathe.

I took a look at that lathe on their site. Wow, it looks a lot like my older PM 3520. Mine was built in 2002. The 2015 version has way more bells and whistles than mine, but I have been very happy with my PM.
It looks maybe a bit lighter in some areas, but the overall design is very similar. Even down to the speed, the long tool rest, motor HP, and the shape of the legs. Considering the PM is well over twice the price, the Grizzly could be one heck of a bargain.
