    Smile It's here !!

    Trucker finally dropped it off Friday evening. Great guy, he hand trucked it down my 300' deer fly infested driveway

    So far I'm pretty impressed. Everything fit together and the right amount of bolts, nuts and washers were in the bag The paint is perfect and adjustments were simple enough that I could do them.

    Kind of annoying that they mixed metric and standard fasteners but what the heck. At least the instructions were in all in English.

    I can foresee a mobile base in my future as well as a riser block. But I really excited to give it a few tough tests this week.

    Woo-hoo! Congrats, Bob. If you're thinking about a riser block, sooner is better than later, so you don't invest in too many blades that will end up being too short once you have the riser.

    +1000 on that. I've got a few blades from before I got mine. Not even sure why I didn't throw them away yet....

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I would say that it is Purdy -- but Purdy is just west of me a few miles.

    Looks nice and hope you get many miles of cutting out of it...

    Hi Bob,

    Congratulations. You will use that tool for a gillion things over the next many years. I am still using the Delta that my dad purchased when I was in High School (about 1942 or 43). It works great and I use it almost every day. This tool was a good lifetime investment for you.

    Have fun with it and Enjoy,

    Jim
