        thoughts and opinions requested huh? Ok, I suggest you kiss your wife now, before the saw arrives, as you wont have much time for her once the saw shows up. Butter her up good now, so she might throw you some food down by the saw so you dont have to get up from your projects! Enjoy the saw, your going to love it! Dale

          Wow Jack,

          A P-20, you are going to love it according to what I have read on them.

          But just wait, Bill Young will surely comment on your purchase: he has one and I don't think it could be parted from his dead fingers when the time comes

          Never having owned one myself, I can only say that it's classified with the "good" purchases, so you definitely will not regret it.

          Remember to keep the first projects you do on it, and show us the results (don't be shy).

            Jack, I have had my P-20 for over 2 years now and love it. I had a 20" VS Delta before and had to use a tool to change the blade and I could not top feed with it. When I purchased mine Delta was having a problem with the rod in the back of the saw that lets the upper arm raise and lower, I had to return the first one and they shipped me another which has had no problems. I believe Bill Young notified Delta of this problem and they checked all of their unsold saws and corrected the problem. I had no problem going from a VS to the 6 speed belt drive because I very seldom change the speed, it only takes a few seconds to change the belt. Have fun with your new toy. Mick.

              The lack of decent air from the blower on the low speeds is the only fault I can find of the saw.

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
