Any information about this machine would be helpful. I think it is built by Shop Fox therefore Griz, but that is more a guess. Also this dealer is the only one I have seen offer North State tools. If anyone has any experience with either of these, I would appreciate some feedback.
(Yes, I did search both brands on LJ, saw some on NS and nothing on Steelex.)
Thanks,
Dealer: LeNeave Machinery and Supply Co

Steelex is a brand, that as I understand it, is a Grizzly house brand. That planer looks a lot like the Grizzly unit that can be had for the same money (this one). It would likely be an okay machine, but don’t know for sure. If it were me, I would go with Grizzly as it is more of a known quantity.
