    Steel City vs. Shop Fox

    Browsing the web, I came across this info. Might be interesting to know that the new Steel City Toolworks line of jointers came off the same line as the Shop Fox. Check out this link and browse the manual. Nothing remarkable other than theirs is only a 2 hp 3 knife unit but the basic...
