Well I decided how I want to control the saw. I wanted to keep the existing LVS ‘cause I think it’s cool, so I wired the VFD to handle it. Just needed to flip 1 DIP switch and reset some of the external control functions and it works nicely. The location of the VFD in the video is just temporary (it will either be going on the underside of the the table or on a wall). I set it up like this to show a vibration.
I configured the motor to accelerate to speed in 1s and decelerate to stop in 1s. As you can see in the video it does that fine but you’ll also notice what I happens when I placed a knock-out plug on the table surface, it dances right off. Now, I had a matched set of belts for this thing and now I can only locate 2 so the saw is currently running on 2 belts.
My question…will running on 2 belts cause such a vibration?
More info: I have new arbor bearings but I did not replace the motor bearings.
Thanks for watching!
