Grizz or Smithy lathe

16-6-2010The Grizzly looks like it will cost you $300 to $400 more by the time the crate is sitting in your shop Just looking at the specs and features it looks like the Grizzly would be way more cost effective since it already has lights coolant system spider and the foot brake is a nice feature
