Jimsawyer.. a bottomfeeder feeds the blade UP through the wood, and reclamping at the top clamp.And as unixpro stated, you do in fact get into a rhythm, and its even hard to explain, but a 6 second blade change from hole to hole bottom feeding is quick enough for me,thats why Im still a bottomfeeder.Honest, I has nothing to do with my thick hard skull!!!

Duh, sorry there. Momentary lapse of reason. I got my terms turned around. I've been a bottom feeder for 17 years. What I meant to say was That I had never thought of top feeding. Although, I do have a problem. Because I do alot of inlay work, I have to put a couple of pieces of masking tape over over the blade hole to make a sort of zero clearance set-up. Otherwise I can loose some very small pieces. This leaves me with a very small hole to thread down into. However, the next time I do anything fretted, I'm going to try top feeding.

I'm a bottom feeder with an Easy-Lift too. I got mine a week after I bought my saw. When I'm not using it, I put a piece of 2X4 under the arm in the up position. It takes some strain off the spring, so I hope it will last longer.
There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!
