The “General” saws, are “General International”, not to be confused with the legendary Canadian made General line owned by the same family company. Still good contractor saws with good fences, but are an older technology with no riving knife and outboard motors, so I think $500 is on the steep side. The Delta could be a really nice deal if it’s in decent shape…it’s likely a 36-717 hybrid. The R4511 and Delta could both be good deals….you might consider buying both, putting the Biese on the R4511 and reselling the Delta with the R4511’s fence.
