Glad to read of your conversation with Mr. Hucheson. It validates my experience, also. Although, I've only used a Craftsman, Delta and a DeWalt, I definitely prefer using the Delta.
It runs smoother than either of the other two, blade changes are simple and the clamps are secure. I've not found the lack of VS to be a detriment. The two speeds are adequate. I guess one could add a rheostat in line. The little motor (1/4hp?) provides ample power.
