I couldn't wait until tomorrow, so I talked the postmaster lady into digging through and finding the package they failed to deliver today. At first I was kind of disappointed at the speed, or should I say the lack there of, with which it opened. I loosened up the blade pivot tension screw and it almost jumped out of my hand, so I adjusted it to a speed that I'm comfortable with and left it there. I really like the size/weight construction. Very sturdy.
