So I just picked up a 1999 Grizzly G1023 table saw. It’s in really good shape for the year. Brand new shop fox classic fence. Picked up a JET mobile base.
Tonight i started tearing into it to clean it up a little.
When i brought it home i started it up and noticed an odd sound, and deduce one of the belts was bad. Left it on and looked under neath, and the center belt wasn’t taught like the outer two. So i took them off, and sure enough, the center one’s sidewall was chewed out.
Is this anything to be concerned with as far as pulleys and such? The other two are fine. I’m going to order the set from grizzly.
All components work just fine, could be a tad smoother but I’m not complaining. Once i removed the top, i noticed this hard yellowish stuff. I can only assume its VERY dried tree sap. Any tips for cleaning this up?
While I’m at it, is there anything else i should be looking out for? I spun the arbor to listen or feel for any signs of trouble, and other than a very minor squeak alls good. No play what so ever.
Any other tips greatly appreciated!
