  • Are my bearings shot on my TS3650 table saw?

    After using using my TS3650 for a little over 5 years I just recently noticed a metallic vibrating noise coming from the motor. Also notice a slight increase in vibration but nothing too major. Even with the motor off if I spin the pulley coming out of the motor I can still hear the metallic noise, very faint but still noticeable. Is it time to replace my bearings? Anyone else experience this with their table saw? Thanks!

    Remove the belt and spin the arbor and the motor individually and find out which component is making the noise.

    I had my 3650 for 7 years and never had a problem like this. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen though.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      Sounds like the cooling fan on the motor has came loose. Remove the cover and check the fan.

        Thanks for the suggestions guys. I guess I'll have to try a few things.
