I thought my saw was reasonably vibration free for a contractor but on start up and especially shut down it would give a slight shudder. After years of ignoring advice to buy a link belt I did and am sorry I waited so long because it’s like having a new saw. I only thought my saw ran smooth but now there is no more shudder even at shut down and I’d swear it cuts a little smoother though that might be psychosomatic. If you’ve been wanting to try a link belt and have been putting it off, stop procrastinating and go get one. I’ll probably pick up another for my drill press and lathe, neither really need it—or do they?
size: 1/2” x 60”
Price: $24.99 (or $19.99 w/ coupon)
Update 03/2014: after breaking in, the links must have tightened up a bit and I had to remove 2 links but otherwise I’m still very satisfied.
