A month or 2 ago i picked up an old Unisaw for real cheap on craigslist. I planed on taking it apart and re-building everything/repainting in the spring when it warms up some. In the meantime, I’ve been using it without issue.
Anyway, my problem when i move the blade by hand (the saw is unplugged) it doesn’t stay and there is a lot of resistance. For Example: if i need to measure blade alignment, i pick a tooth and measure from the front, then when i spin the blade to measure the tooth from the back, i need to hold it in place. If i let go it will spin forward maybe 5 or 6 inches.
Is this a motor issue? belts to tight? Arbor bearings?
Thanks in advance!
