I recently purchased a Steel City 3HP 10" table saw, model #35905 (http://steelcitytoolworks.com/produc...=12&tool=35905).
The vibration is enough to shake my 4' level off of the table. I have verified a few things:
1) The table is quite level.
2) The blade is very straight <0.0005" (Forrest Woodworker II).
3) All of the hardware is tight.
I purchased four anti-vibration leveling pads from (http://www.vibrationmounts.com/Store...=Products3.htm) but that doesn't seem to have help much.
Also, I am having a trouble getting the belt pulleys aligned. The arbor pulley isn't as thick as the motor pulley (height-wise).
The manual states a straight-edge should be used to align the pulleys, but this is impossible for two reasons. One, when the pulley grooves are aligned the pulley heads are offset because of the larger head on the motor pulley. Secondly, the motor mounts don't allow for a ~1/4" offset to get the heads aligned.
Where is a good source to purchase belts online? I had read that rubber belts can contribute to vibration fs it has remembered its shape.
Is there a good place to purchase aftermarket pulleys so I can use the linked style belts and make to it easier to align them? The current pulley system is a poly v-belt.
