allthunbs Hi Dan:

Yup, I've got the four screw, three-blade version and snipe is still a problem. It seems inherent in the design of the machine. There's too much flex in the motor head. Probably the plastic castings.

BTW, how goes it? Van still wet???? ;-)

DaninVan Thanks, Ron. I too have the Delta, and yes snipe is a pain...
Still and all, I'm happy with mine.

Garry G Hi Allthumbs

I just down loaded the manual for the Delta 22-560. I recently bought a 2nd hand one of these (in Australia) - For me as a spare-time chippy it looked better engineered and a better buy than a new Ryobi or equivalent. I've given it a good clean up and some TLC and it works a treat. Tested it on some pine and then then some very old, very dry eucalyptus hardwood - no problems.

I needed the manual to check setting of rollers and for instructions on blade replacement which will be due before too much longer.

Thanks again
