  • Ridgid Table Saw TS3650 Belt Slips

    All-

    I have the Ridgid Table Saw, model TS3650 (contractor saw). Since assembling the saw the belt has stretched and now slips when I am cutting anything tougher than balsa wood (slight exageration on that). Before replacing the belt (and ruining that one too), I am trying to figure out if I set this thing up correctly. It appears that the weight of the motor is supposed to pull tension on the belt....but the belt quickly stretched and now is too slack.

    I wanted to see if anyone else had a similar problem and what they did about it.

    Any thoughts you have are much appreciated.

    It sure sounds like you haven't properly mounted the motor or aligned the pulleys. I'd suggest you repeat the setup procedure again.
