    Take a look at what folks are saying about the Delta P20.

    http://www.scrollsaws.com/SawReviews/P20.html

    I have a Delta P20 and the top feeding and clamps ease of use are excellent.

    I have had the DeWalt and didn't like it. It's construction and power don't come close to those features on the Delta. Tried a couple of RBI Hawk saws and had to send them both back. Vibration was terrible. The Hegner is a great saw - I have the 18VS - if you want to bottom feed.

    Hope you are right Dale.......Gee, if my saw WASN"T STILL IN THE SHOP, I'd run right out and look

    Great news Daryl185! I hope you get a good one

    Not to disagree with MNScroller, but I've found the EZ lift beneficial to both top and bottom feeding. I personally like the controlled lowering with one hand while top feeding........ I simply grab the blade and thread it down with one hand and use the other to move the piece....if needed..... just my technique, we all have our own...... I still bottom feed most of the time....out of habit and being left handed......dang blower gets in the way........

    Daryl, I hope it's a dandy. If everything checks out properly, make a serious attempt at top feeding. Bill mentioned to me that he always top feeds with his Dewalt. When I received my used Dewalt off Ebay a couple weeks ago I decided to give the top feed a try. I found it to be a real pain in the butt. So I went back to bottom feeding using a small length of 2 X 4 to hold the arm up. With tiny holes, that is a pain in the butt also. So, I decided to give the top feed a try again. Guess what? I like it. It just takes a bit of practice and a bunch of patience. Just like everything else, there is a learning curve. I'm glad I stuck with it. Now I can thread it thru the exact hole that I want instead of a hole next to it that I don't want to do yet. Just don't give up. The challenge is learning to line the drilled hole up with the small slot in the table. The easy lift will be a waste of money if you can learn to do it from the top. Give this a serious try first.

    thats also what I am hoping Dale, I too ordered mine from Amazon.com, Tool King I think and it comes with a 1 yr guarantee from DeWalt also so thats a bonus in my court

    Congratulations Daryl
    Just FYI, I have a DeWalt Type 1 which I love. I had need for a second saw in a different location and decided to buy (from Amazon) another DeWalt which of course is a Type 2. I was a bit nervous about the clamp and table issues which some of the Type 2's have had. As soon as the new one arrived, I quickly checked for table flatness and blade clamp function and I find no problem at all with this Type 2. I hope yours checks out equally well.
    Dale M.

    Congrats!

    Congrats , Daryl, You will love the saw. Now all you need is the stand, the light, and the EZ lift. I'm not kidding I have the extras and it makes it so nice. If,
    God forbids, any thing goes wrong the repair shop in Tampa on Waters is top notch.

    Good luck. I sorry the trip to Miss. didn't work out for you.

    Later,

    -Bill
