  • vibration ?

    I know that when you have junk you have junk. I have a 16" vs delta. Was given to me, so the price was right. Are thier any little tricks of the trade to take out a little of the vibration? I have learned a lot on this old saw ! A good one would probaly scare me !

    Don't have a Delta but...

    Mounting the saw to a firm heavy base always helps no matter the brand.... sometimes a real good cleaning of the arms and greasing and oiling will bring some of it down a notch...

      Is the saw on a dedicated stand? If so, can you add some weight to the base? If the saw sits on a bench, put a piece of heavy carpet padding underneath to help dampen the vibration and bolt it directly to the bench top.

      Otherwise check for any loose hardware on the saw itself. Sometimes fasteners work loose and can contribute to excessive vibration.

        Try placing the saw on a piece of carpeting or carpet pad. Then fasten it to a heavy workbench or saw stand. Having the stand setting on a concrete floor will help. Running the saw at a lower speed, most saws will vibrate when run at high speeds. Just the nature of the beasts. Good luck with it.
