No question that some sayings are common or
rather, several people use them, in some specific
regions. I guess the definition of common may be
a part of the problem. Common in my mind means
used by many people in various regions, more like
"national" common. Yep we have one of those
stupidities and it is "barrow pit" meaning the
drainage ditch along side a road as in, "he drove
into the barrow pit." But it is pretty regional
and tho heard from time to time is not really
common. Thank God, because anyone with a mind
know that a pit is a different shape from a ditch
and the ditch has nothing to do with barrow but is
simply dug for drainage.
Damn, I am glad that I don't live in a place where
"sweat like a pig" and "smooth as a sewing
machine" are common sayings. That might just be
the tip of the iceberg of nonsense that the people
in those regions believe. How many of those
people believe in a flat earth? BTW, never could
figure that, since a look over the prairie or at
the ocean horizon "should" dispel that nonsense
even for a cave man.
Of course, that proves only that you can see as far in any direction. Look
to the earth's shadow on the moon, as the Greeks did, and you will see that
it must be a _sphere_.
Oh yes, it's sweat like a pig and piss like a racehorse.
tree or a mast and watch approaching or leaving
ships, horses, etc., you can figure out that the
surface curve down from where you stand.
That's good if you figure out that the shadow is
of the earth, otherwise you might think it is the
hand of god.
Piss like a racehorse is common. Sweat like a pig
just indicates a persons ignorance. How about
sweat like a bee? Piss like a tree? Quiet as a
tornado? Humble as a bear? Fast as a sloth?
I give up sweat like a pig is a really good saying
because it fully describes a sweaty job. Not.

That problem has been noted on here before with the new Delta 14" design.
You might want to check some threads that everybody's good buddy 'Bay Area
Dave' posted on this same problem a year or so ago. Despite the source, he
did come up with a temporary solution, which may be worth Googling to see if
it would help you, and a permanent solution ... unfortunately, IIRC, trading
it in on a PowerMatic.
That said, hope you get it solved. Also check for an older "Todd Stock" post
about the changes that make the vibration problematic with this particular
