Hi LJ’s,

A couple of weeks ago i posted a forum about my 10” Contractors Saw vibration. I removed the belt to see if the tablesaw would stop the vibration, the vibration was completely gone. I also read that the vibration could be because the belt isn’t aligned properly.

How do I align the belt so the it is straight?

The instructions that came with the tablesaw were pretty bad

Many thanks

If you can get a long straightedge against both pulleys you should be able to see if they are aligned or fairly close. Depending on your saw that might be hard to see.

Now that the belt is off – is it hard in any spots, can you see one or two areas that are curved to the same radius of the pulley, like maybe it sat in one position for a long time and got set that way?
