After working on one of the $99 tablesaws for as long as I could stand, I graduated up to the TS3650. It's an awesome saw and I absolutely love it (platonic of course), but have run into a problem with it. This may happen to any saws that are belt driven, I am not a professional, so I really dont know.
After about three months of use, the belt on my TS3650 has become loose. When the blade is not raised above 2" or so, it starts slipping when making cuts. The lower the blade, the easier it slips.
Is this a common problem? Are there adjustments I could make to prevent this? After using the saw, I have always left the blade height wherever it was set to cut, should I always lower the blade after use?
Thanks for any advice.
