After way too much research and way too much comparison shopping, I
finally pulled the trigger on a deal through my "local" General
distributor (100 miles away) to buy the General 650 table saw. Thanks
to the many folks here who provided advise and thoughts. Within the
next few weeks when I take delivery of the unit, I'll post my thoughts
on the whole buying, setup, and general feelings of the unit.
Don't forget that this saw ships with the wings installed. Make sure
the helpers know NOT to use them for lifting. I made my helpers day
when I explained to all of them that we had to lift the main table
only, as we slid the saw through a 3' door. <G>
One comment was "If you ever move, I won't be around that week." <G>

I'm already trying to figure out HOW I'm going to get the saw back from San
Antonio to Austin. I'm going to have to rent a trailer, and some type of
dolly so that I can get it moved into position. The good news is I've set
aside the front door of my garage as the spot for it, so once I open the
door, it only has to go in 2.5 feet and we can drive the trailer to the
position where it gets dropped off. Several people at work have already
offered to help me move it in (They just want to see this thing -- OK, so do
I since I had to buy this sight unseen), but if I ever move it's going to be
a bear. ;-)
