I’ve checked and tightened everything but it still has the issue. I did delve a little deeper into the troubleshooting though but trying out a few different cuts.

The noise starts once the stock reaches half-way across the blade, and seems to only be an issue if there is a lot of material to the left of the blade. I.e. Ripping stock down the center = noise, using left mitre slot to cross cut = noise, however using right mitre slot to cut stock and just shaving a small amount of the left end = no noise, ripping just a little off the stock (with stock obviously to the right of the blade) = no noise.

I’m starting to think it’s a bad blade. Perhaps it’s warped? I’m really not sure, so the next chance I get I’m going to swap out the blade for the one that came with the saw. I intended to do that today, but betwen wrestling with the magnetic switch on my new[to-me] jointer, playing with my new planer, and building a Valentine’s day gift I’ve been stuck for time..
