About a week ago I purchased this great Ridgid R4511 Tablesaw. It’s an unbelievable upgrade from my 20+ Sears 10” tablesaw. It’s all set up, and squared off. I purchased a piece of phenolic so i can make zero clearance inserts. I have searched for high density plastic faces for the rip fence, but have been unsuccessful, so i will order a piece of high density polyethylene from usplastic.com. One problem I’d like to resolve is the vibration during speed down of the motor and blade. My thoughts are the the long storage of the V-Belt that the saw comes with is the cause of the vibration. All V-Belt or Drive Belts come in an oval configuration when they are packed, and they stay this way for a long time. I’m thinking that the two short loops at the ends of the v-belt pass over the pulleys are causing the vibration during the speed down after the switch is pushed in the off position. I would appreciate positive feedback on this subject if anyone has experienced vibration in this way? This tablesaw if new to me, so if anyone could alert me to any concerns they have has with this, that would also be great.
