I finally got around to checking on getting new pulleys. The guy at the electric motor shop told me to have them balanced instead. So I went to a machine shop and had them balance the pulleys. When I got home, I tried the saw – no pulley and it worked fine. Put the pulley on the motor and vibrating badly again. At this point I was a little ticked that the balancing didn’t work. So I decided I’d take the motor off and take it and the pulley to the motor shop and get their opinion. I thought, no, try it one more time.
So I did and errrrrr. The motor will not run now. So I took it off and got it to the shop yesterday. They said just a starter of starting capacitor probably (Yeah I quessed right). They are going to keep the motor and run though it. New bearing and new capacitors. Should have it back next week and the Saga will continue.
If I had know how big of a pain in the “you know what” this Unisaw was going to be I’d a never bought it.
Oh who am I kidding. I would have still bought it. Just venting a little I guess. By the time I get done I’ll have close to $700 in it and it’ll be like new. I guess that is still pretty good really.
