Hope all of you are safe those who are braving the storm.
I recently purchased a Powermatic 141 (1974 – Green model) from CL. Everything seems to be in good shape despite the cosmetic chips and mars of the paint job. When I bought it, it cut straight and accurately but there was excessive vibration. I figured I could tease out the issue but it seems to be more than I bargained for so I’m turning to you folks.
What I’ve done so far with Powermatic Customer Support (they’re great btw).
1: Removed the bandsaw blade and ran the machine – Still vibrating
Left to do: hard mount the motor to my bench and see if it vibrates.
Is there anything else I should be doing? Any other major culprits of vibrating?
