      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

think long and hard on what your end use will be for your band saw. Generally small wheeled saws tend to have shorter blade life especially if you work them hard. check out some wood magazines back issues and web sites for some tool tests. They may have tested the saw or saws you are considering. many of these sites will have discussion forums that may also assist your decision.

Cheesehead has a good point on the blade life. Also, on a small wheeled saw, you are limited to the maximum thickness of blade. That will limit the tooth selections you can run. I have an old 12" Sears floor model and I can run blades up to .025" and get good life, but I would not go much thicker. I have blades in several tooth configurations but I run a 1/2" X 3TPI hook blade for most work, It's fast, doesn't use too much power, and leaves a surprisingly good finish.

I had the Delta you are asking about,not only wood,my main use was cuttin deer,It worked great! It was stolen and replaced with some yellow off brand (too lazy to go look for name)Piece of junk! cant adjust blade to stay centered with tension just junk!!!

If its for light use homeshop,or meat cuttin the Delta works great.
