The table summarizes the machines made by General. The "Data points" column primarily relies on the dated General catalogs that we have, although other dated sources, such as ads and articles, may also be used. Unless other specified, a model suffix of "-1" means that it comes with an enclosed sheet-steel base. In their later years the model number without the suffix meant that it came without a base but General was never very consistent with that.
