Yes, I wished there was a distributor that was close enough so I could check one out plus be there in case I needed a part or service. I ended up buying the Jet OES-80CS from a local dealer that has been in the CLT area for 2 generations. He handles many brands; Jet, Shop Fox, Powermatic, Laguna. He could order me a Baileigh but with shipping it would be another $300. So I pulled the trigger on the Jet. I think having a local Jet distributor is a good thing and parts if needed will be easier plus he stocks the belts right there. The Baileigh has an oddball size belt.
