If, by "normal," you mean gratitous insults, profanity for profanity's sake,
or other posts of an excitable nature often seen here, then I'm afraid

My old Kraut father taught me to always buy right once. I glad he did.
That said, I now wish I got the 10" slider instead of the 12". It's really
a big SOB.
I thought I'd rather have had the 10", too, after I got my 5213. One
of the first things I did was cut 2x6s to build knee walls in the
attic above the garage (think bonus room). Since the roof has a 15:12
pitch, I was glad I had the bigger blade. ;-)
