Does anyone here have any experience or know anything about with North State machines? I have heard of them for several years, but never paid much attention to it.
I am interested in their 16" open end wide belt sander, but after much searching, the only place to buy North state machines of any kind is Leneave Supply in Charlotte, NC. I'm not comfortable buying a machine that only has 1 outlet (700 miles away) in the US.
The only other choice in my price range (barely) is the Grizzly G0819 and they have outlets everywhere.
