  • DeWalt scroll saw vibration

    Can anyone help with vibration on my DeWalt? It has very few hours on it, but it is no longer under warrenty. The problem starts when the saw is running over half speed. At low speed the saw don't vibrate.

    I had the same problem with my RBI Hawk and the problem was a uneven floor. I solved the problem by putting concrete paving stones under the Table legs. The stones are 12' X12' X 1' thick and only cost a buck apiece at the local home center. If it don't work, you can always use them in the garden as stepping stones!  Good luck !

      I just found this site so sorry for the late reply. I had a vibration problem with my DeWalt when I owned one and I found that by moving it to many different locations on my wood floor untill I found the best spot was the answer for me. My DeWalt is long gone now because it wore out and I am now using a different make.

        Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
        That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

        If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

        The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

        You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
