    At the sale price it looks fine. At full list you could almost buy three of the Grizzly's which is $239.00, pre-shipping. The Griz also has four columns, is rated at 2 hp, 15 amps. A feature of the Griz I like is that the blades are 1/8" thick compared to 1/16" for (all/most?) competitiors models. The Griz cuts at 10,000 rpm. Mine cuts almost no-sanding smooth. Do wish I had a positive depth stop though, it would be a very useful feature.

    Don.

    That's a good price for the Makita. I paid $360 last year...with "free shipping". So, the $280 + $70 shipping, makes it $10 less.

    The list prices on Amazon are no real number you can rely on. I've never seen or heard the prices listed as actual selling prices (not discounted) or of anyone even considering buying at anywhere near the "List" prices they quote...

    I almost made a comment on this one Frank but decided not to.
