    Default Canadian General Tool and Exaktor gone?

    I was looking for a couple of Canadian products. It seems from my search that General table saws and Exaktor sliding tables have bitten the dust. Is this true?

    I can't get any of the links on that site,. except the 2018 catalog, to work. Further, I can't find anyone with General inventory to sell.

    Seems to me that I heard that they stopped manufacturing their Canadian made machinery, and are only supplying their "International" line.

    That makes sense as the international line is all I can find.

    General is gone as of December 2018. RIP. Esp as their Canadian made table saws and larger jointers were very nice. Maybe not Wadkin quality, but still nice. Didn't care for their Gen International line as it was just import stuff like everyone else's.

    Kinda hoped that General would be a long term survivor, esp after they bought out Poitras.
