Yes if it shows a low amount of run out let us know.I’ve got a reference rod I’ll chuck up and indicate.
If your local HF is like ours, they are already sold out.
If policy is the same at all stores the floor display model should still be there to check.
I did some more product spec comparisons and for $400 the HF's next model up has about double the HP rating, a larger square table, including T slots.
It also has a lower lowest speed under 200 RPM and larger diameter main column plus IIANM a taller/ larger spindle case, which may add rigidity and better bearing support to the spindle.
