Question about Powermatic 1791259/Model 2415 3HP 1Ph 230V , Bandsaws, Woodworking
Ive a brand new powermatic 2415, fnally got 220 installed in my shop, only to have this vibration problem!
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 again...off 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.
