You know it's Christmas time when you get the new Grizzly catalog.
Several new tools in it, and, as always, very interesting. Most notable, for me, there is a new, top end, EVS lathe in it, the G0694. Briefly, 20x43", 3hp 220v, 3 phase. Big, heavy (758 pounds) sum ba gun. Priced at $2,650.00, I believe it will give the fancy name brands (PM and up) a real challenge for the big lathe share of the market. It's not on the web site yet and I'm too lazy to scan a picture.
I could have been tempted if it had been available when I got my G0632. BTW, the 0632 went up $200.00 to $1,425.00 since last years catalog. Sign of things to come?
