nope toolie, my saw don’t run like that. MrRon, the motor did jump. I looked at the belts and see multiple problems i think. They definitely look glazed. The center belt seems to have more slack than the other 2, but all 3 seem lose to me. Going to go ahead and replace them while they’re off. Is it necessary to get a matched set?.

Matched sets no longer exist. They are no longer made.

I recommend that you use the twist belts from harbor freight.
They work very well and you can adjust the length at will.
In addition they absorb the vibrations.
This what I use on my Unisaw and I am very satisfied with them , like many other LJers are.
I use these belts on most of my tools.
Another advantage is that when a belt is to long you save the extra length and soon you can make a full belt with all the pieces, free of charge.
