LOL Yeah well see this is what happens when you have no actual time to touch or caress your saw and instead are just thinking about it while slaving in your cubicle all day… soon as I got the e-mail forward of your response, I was like I really am sort of a dolt. I kinda was forgetting about the missing wall I was so preoccupied about the hole in the door so to speak.

Hmm so is this a good idea to make an insert for motor side? This is more my thing:) Computer Case modding I know….!Would there be advers effect though of sealing cabinet? and then using filtration system to pull all air? That likely would include pulling air THROUGH the motor though I’m worried that could be an issue… Is this done?

Also on belts I need to use better camera then Iphone I was hoping it would show but it didn’t. Yes you can see lettering on belts but you can’t see they literally have misisng chunks out of them. They do have to go. Personally I would rather upgrade the belts if possible if they can retain the same performance and not strain motor is there something a bit tougher? I read somehwere cogged belts are better? Are not all the belths “cogged”? Also Ho do I figure out my belt size does not say in G1023 manual I pulled from Grizzly site.

It’s easy to give it lots of thought when thinking about your saw is about all your able to do. Now that I got it I been so busy I can’t even play with it. :(

Keep it coming!!! I am making notes of everything!
