Reduce Vibration, Change Lengths Easily
I’ve battled band saw vibration ever since I bought it in the early ‘80’s. I’ve re-balanced the wheels, stiffened the frame, added ballast, and changed the pulleys, but the most effective and least expensive “fix” was to install a Power Twist belt. It is made of short inter-locking sections so it seems to run truer, and transmit less vibration. The inter-locking Power Twist links belts make it easy to adjust belt length (no more frantic trips to five stores trying to find the correct belt length). The A/4L 1/2" size is the most common for woodworking equipment. Made in USA.
