Well I have both a video of the saw with the pulley installed and a video with the pulley pulled off.
It doesn’t show as much in the video as I hoped it would. You can barely see the throat plate moving across the saw with the pulley on. I can assure that it is much worse than the video shows. The biggest difference you notice while standing near it is the sound change from with a pulley to without. I don’t know if the video picks that up or not.
Oh well, I guess it was worth a try. If nothing else I can practice posting a video.
Saw with pulley attached to motor. (no belts installed)
