    Angry Delta belt problem

    A couple of years ago I brought a secondhand Delta 36-600 table saw. I had to replace the small timing belt between the motor and the blade arbor when I got it. I have just lost the drive again and found the belt shreaded. I have not used the saw on a daily basis and felt this was not a very long life. As the saw reaches full speed in about half a second, there is a lot of load on this small belt.
    My question is, should the saw accelerate at this speed, and is this the life I should expect from the belt.

    Second the link belts. Made the vibration go away and has been on the saw for 10 years. I have an older blue Jet contractor saw.

    dallas, a link belt will not fit on your saw, check pulley alignment when installing your next belt and keep your eyes open for a true contractors saw if you like the size and portability of the one you`re using? a true contractors saw will have a motor hanging behind the saw on a hinge and the weight of the motor will tension the belt.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    I'm with Tod. Alignment is the only thing I can think of that might shred that belt.
