Yep. Got a General Model 75-050T M1!!! Not cheap, but a great machine. I’ve only use it once so far, but it made quick work of some table leg mortises in very hard Maple. In my next project (coffee table) I’ll be using the tilting function.

Good to hear it. Did you review the General?

If you mean did I write a review, no, haven’t really had that much experience with it yet. FWW named it “Best overall” in their 2005 review. The Woodtek was “Best Value”, but I think once you’re spending in this neighborhood, you might as well spend a little bit more & get the tilting capability.

Have your say...
