I have the ridgid 3660 TS.
I have to move it alot to park it when Im finished.
I know it has a mobile base and its not meant to roll around all the time, but I struggle with it over lumpy cement floors.
Could be one of the reasons.
Im having a tough time getting the saw to stop making alot of clanging type noise when I shut it off, sounds like two blades slapping together like cymbols, clanging, and sometimes after its running, it sounds like its grinding, or rubbing.
I spent 2 hours just now adjusting the motor each position, letting it in, aligning it, but eventually I still get the sounds. and I know there has to be something wrong. This machine was very smooth and quiet when I first got it, its still almost new.
Is it possible the belt is slipping?
I adjust it as the manual says, making sure I can pinch the belt in the center and the motor lifts in sync.....seems nothing other than I did originally, but there is that clanging noise that sometimes comes when its running, and the rubbing sound. I looked all around the well, the blade, under the table, I see nothing obstructing it, and Im pretty much lost here, ready to try to go get some help.
btw, with the machine off, and I spin the blade with my hand, I can hear the sllight clanging sound.
