Re: Re: Saws Binding
...Me again... you have to de-glaze or "sharpen" your blade first. Belt tension shouldn't be excessive, as, in a situation as yours, the belt can slip on the drive pulleys, and give an amount of "fail-safeness" to the drive mech..at least you wont burn up your motor !!
Devise a means of reducing the input feed speed when you reach a large cross-section of material, .... The old MOHAVE / IDEAL saws had a rheostat-based system that was actuated by the torque on the feed screw allowing this twisting force, in turn, to actuate a rheostat which, slowed down the 12 v D.C. feed screw motor...
