        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.

                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
