Just a little background first, I have been woodworking my entire life off and on and have even done it for a profession. I live in INdianapolis Indiana and enjoy having many species of locally grown and harvested woods at my disposal. Now I just do it for a hobby and mainly do furniture , toys , jigs , and custom cabinetry. When I setup my shop about 10 years ago I picked up the Hitatchi C10FL Hybrid Saw from the box store down the road. I have used it for 10 years extensively. Three of the 10 years doing customer furniture commercialy from it and it has worked flawlessly. I would totally buy it again if I had the opportunity. I paid about 400 bucks for it and I would put it up against any Powermatic or Sawstop anyday! NO burning and dead nuts accurate. With better marketing and distribution it could bave been in the 1000 dollar range but luckily it was brought in as an entry leval hobby saw and I saved big bucks.
To the point , over the last several years the saw has increasingly become louder and louder. Now with ear muffs on it is almost deafining. I have not noticed it but it will rattle your teath. No vibration but just loud. My inlaws also purchased one at the same time and there unit was used only a fraction of the time as mine. Checked it out the other day and there is whisper quite as mine was many years ago.
The questions: Has anyone else experienced this problem?
If so please explain your symptoms?
Did you do anything to remidy this and how did it work?
Please provide all the details as I would like to maintain ownership of this highly valuable saw and not be forced to shop for one of the overprices overseas garbage.
Thanks for your Time : Gary in INdianapolis
This is my baby!
