Not that make, but we have plenty of members with swing blade mills.

What problems are you having? Most of the common issues are similar across all the different designs, so ask away. Someone will probably be able to give constructive suggestions at least.

Did you buy factory direct, or did you go through a dealer?
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

I bought it factory direct.

Ian  I have been using your advice about using smaller cuts and making 2-3 passes and you are right it doesn't any more time.
My model has the all aluminum frame. I get a lot of twisting and movement.
mine is the new model I was wondering if the old has the same movement.
I am going to try to take a video next week and see if I can capture that movement.
