They’re not the cheapest tools to start with, so on sale its not necessarily a steal, but all General International products are on sale up to 40% off right now on Home Depot. It looks like free shipping on some of the smaller items, but all can be shipped to the store for free.

Debating on picking up one of their mortise machines after lusting after a Powermatic for a while.

Hopefully it will help someone out in the market for some new equipment!

Those prices are pretty much what other retailers are charging (Burn Tools, Tools-plus, Utter Guys, Acme), so the 40% off appears to be more bark than bite. General “International” is a reputable family owned company though, offers dealer support, and a 2 year warranty, so some premium is expected….mail ordering GI tools pretty much negates the benefit of dealer support. Most of the tools are decent Asian import stuff, on par with Jet, Griz, Shop Fox, Rikon, some Laguna, Baliegh, some PM, some Delta, etc. (not to be confused with the remnants of their highly regarded Canadian made “General” line). If HD would honor a 10% or 20% coupon, some those deals would get a bit more attractive.

Exactly… The Excalibur guard goes for ~ $400 every day.
