Thanks for the idea. I jammed some wood it and it stalled like normal and here was the result of what I observered with all the doors off: The motor turns a belt connected to a pully, a second belt comes of that pully wich turns the wheels inside the bandsaw. The motor never bogged down it was still turning the belt connected to it at the same speed, the pully was also still turning but the second belt that connects the pully to the wheels was not turning at all even though the pully it was connected to was turning. upon inspecting this belt it shows significant wear and is highly freyed. The culpret seems to be that belt, I will replace all the belts since the other one looked rough too. maybe this will solve it. I love woodworking, but when it comes to machinary I think I am conmpletly lost. thanks or the suggestion.
