It only happens when cutting in the middle of a board, ripping or crosscut. When I say I can hear it, I mean I can hear the blade dig deeper into both side of the cut, sometimes causing a burn, everything else sounds normal. I cleaned the blade and checked all the extension tables for flush/level but it still happened.

It does not happen when: not cutting, cutting on the edge of a board, or taking light cuts. I inspected the belt recently and there is no fraying, hazing or bumps, it looks fine but I won’t rule it out.

@PurpLev – Something is making the blade resonate

Yes, well put. Something is causing a momentary resonance when cutting inside a piece. I made a new zero clearance insert on the off chance that my factory insert (which I normally use with the rip blade) is bobbling and causing the wood to shift. I’m getting ready to go test it.
