This is my first post, so plese be patient with me if I do anything wrong:huh: Does anyone have any experience with either the Delta 31-396 or the Grizzly GO564? They look to be identical machines from the same overseas factory, but of course the Grizzly is substantially less expensive. I have had good experience with some of the Grizzly products that I own or have owned and have had problems as of last with many of the Delta products that I own.

Thanks for your time and response.

Was in Malta last year on holiday. Most impressive was St Johns chapel in Valleta. My wife loved Mdina. If you love history, then Malta is full of it.

Malta very popular in UK as we appreciate what it did for us during WW2.
We met lots of ex servicemen on nostalgia trips.

Loved Gozo.
You must go.

I was there over 20 years ago and I loved it. Malta is a poular destination for British citizens...I met many British while I was there and enjoyed their company. Malta is rich in history and traditon and as a child, I loved the stories that my Parents and relatives shared with us. Many of the stories were of WWII. The amount of bombings that they endeared was incredible. I would love to take my children there one day, but unfortunatly, since my visit to Malta I was involved in an automible accident that left me in a wheelchair. I have a great life and enjoy many interests, but I wonder what it whould be like to go to a country that some of structures have been there since before Christ was born:). I will take them there one day and hopefully soon. My Father and one of my sisters just returned from Malta and had a grand time. Gozo is a great little Island that I enjoyed. For such a small Island, Malta has so much to see.

Im glad to hear that you and your wife enjoyed it so much,

Larry
