Last week I used a HQ Sweet 16 sit down. When I was going to do some FMQ on my DSM last night I decided that there was no reason not to turn my machine so that the head was oriented the same as the Sweet 16. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
That changed my whole perspective. Of course, if you have your DSM set into a table you aren't going to be able to swivel it 90 degrees. But if you don't -- give it a try and see how it feels.
