It has always done this, but I’m becoming more aware of it and challenged by it.
Turn it on: The basic sound of operation is what you’d expect. There is a steady hum from the motor and what it moves, and a sonic pulsing from the oscillating mechanism.
In addition, about every three seconds there is a muted rattling that increases in volume and then decreases at about the same rate. Repeat.
The machine, says Joe, has always done that. Is in inherent in the design?
At one point I put several hunks of concrete in the base cabinet and that solidified things but did not decrease the source of this post.
I have reduced metal tympanic sounds in my jointer by screwing 3/4 plywood panels to the inside of the base, which is similar in construction to the sander.
