Editor's Review:

by Tom Begnal

review date: November 1, 2003

The General had one of the flattest tables and little wheel or tire runout. It had good test cuts, with the motor showing no tendency to bog down when resawing. We had to file the tension assembly to keep it from catching on the sheet-metal housing behind the upper wheel.
