Thank You so much for your help. The blade WAS under tension for a while, quite a few weeks, like 3 mos or somthing, i ran it for a while...bout an hour or so and its smoothed out conciderably. to where i was able to ballance a nicle no problem,even from dead stop to start ful speed. Then vibb started and on, but now its not too bad. Im not sure of proper tension for this blade, its 3/4 to 1in wide and im just using the guide for the saw.. My floor is not perf flat either,so i was going to put a rubber mat under it,see if that helps.
Again, thank you very much for the reply.

I do not know your machine but I used a STARRITE and had the same problem. My technician could not get it to run quietly and refused to use it. I took time and went through all the adjustments. Make sure you set the correct tention for the blade you're using. Make sure the blade just touches the support bearing. There are lead blocks top and bottom. The blade must run smoothly between these, but just. After about 45minutes I had it running quietly

The problem can also be caused by a blade that is too big (thickness) especially if it was under tention for a long time and not being used. The blade presses the rubber on one side of the wheel which causes it to be off balance at speed but that is supposed to normalise after a while.

Drum is making a loud banging noise during spin, it is brand new

Some banging or knocking during the ramp up to spin speed in this washer is normal. It is difficult to determine whether your washer has a problem or not based on your description. This banging lasts for varying amounts of time until the load is balanced and the washer ramps up to the full spin speed. If the load can not be balanced on the first attempt, the washer will ramp down and then tumble and attempt again to ramp up to speed. This may be the same thing that you are hearing when your washer ramps up to spin speed. Since the washer does spin at the full speed, there is not likely a problem with the washer. The components are designed to withstand repeated vibration and reasonable banging or knocking. The washer will vibrate to some extent at high speed. If you feel that the vibration is excessive, I recommend that you check the stability of the leveling feet. Press down on the diagonally opposing corners of the washer to check for play. If the washer rocks at all when conducting this test, I recommend that you adjust the leveling feet to eliminate this play even is the washer is not perfectly level after making this adjustment. This may help reduce the banging and vibration. Other than that if it is brand new call the people who you purchased it from so you don't void any warranties by taking it apart.

Vibrates in overdrive speed up or slow down it quits

if your vehicle only vibrates at speeds above a certain point the most likely cause of the issue is a tire balance issue. just make sure it doesn't matter if you accelerating or decelerating the vehicle just vibrates after a certain speed, and if this is the case take it to a tire shop and have them check the balance. shouldn't cost more than like 40 bucks.

Front wheels and steering wheel shake while driving

If you get a bad vibration in your steering wheel at low speeds without braking it is either a bad tire or a bad rim. If you get a vibration at speeds around 45-50+ and goes away you probably have a balance issue. If the vibration only occurs while braking then your rotors are warped. If low speeds it shakes i'd take it to a shop to check your tires.

Ive just had a new clutch put in, but when ive driven out of the garage ive noticed that the cars steeringwheel vibrates an shakes when i come off the accelerator mainly happens in third at around 25/30mph...

I would suspect that the fly wheel was not balanced when it was machined. If this is something it has done ever since you had the clutch installed I suspect something is amiss in way it was installed. If this vibration gets worse, immediately stop driving this car and have it towed to the shop.

Front end vibration

It sounds as though your car has two seperate problems. The first problem with the vibration that goes away when you let off the gas pedal is caused by a bad INNER CV joint. It only vibrates when you are accelerating because that is when the joint is under stress. Your vehicle has two axles, each with an inner and an outer joint. My suggestion is to have a competent shop determine which is the bad side and replace the entire axle. The second vibration which occurs at any speed is most likely cause by either a bad tire, or a bent rim.
