Does it matter how much “slack” the motor has when the belt is on? As long as the motor moves all the way up and down and tilt all the way and back without hitting no anything, it is good to go right?

If you change the belt to a link belt you will find it does help vibration a great deal. BUT you will be taking links out from time to time as it stretches. Looking tonight I have had mine 3 years. In that time the tablesaw logbook shows I have taken out links 3 times.

You have a tablesaw logbook?

Also I do have a link belt. Turned the tavble saw on and very little vibrations. Before the restoration it had a definite vibration to the whole top.

I also replaced the bearings in the arbor

Yes I have a logbook for all my larger machines. Maintenance needs to be done and repaired parts need to be notated over the years. Helps to have a written record rather than rely on memory alone. I keep them with the manuals for the tools in a 3 ring binder.

I like the link belts but as others have noted in other posts they do stretch. Some find this more trouble than it is worth. To each his own.
