Last week, I bought a General 650 3hp cabinet saw from Tools-Plus in
I'm semi-local, so I was able to walk in and do the deal, which was
the first time I'd ever purchased there, and only the second time I'd
even set foot in the place.
I actually bought the saw via the web site, with instructions not to
ship the saw. I was provided with a contact name and asked when I'd
like to pick it up.
When I arrived Saturday morning, my saw was on the dock, with the
accessories I'd asked for, all checked out, and ready to go with my
name on them. Two employees with a forklift quickly loaded the saw
for me, and in 15 minutes I was back on the interstate. Fantastic!
I'll be back! I'd also like to point out to fellow 'wreckers that
this place is a real, live, stocked store, with a super staff. I know
that some online vendors tend to be drop shipping vapor dealers, but I
was impressed with this place. They know their stuff, and the HAVE
the stuff, in stock, like massive jointers, stationary belt sanders,
industrial compressors, and other very large, cool stuff.
If I didn't have a trailer, I would have stopped in at fellow 'wrecker
Walt's CD shop right up the street for some new shop tunes, but the
trailer's a bit hard to park. Next time, Walt! <G>
