Ridgid 3650 TS Belt Dragging
I've been modifying my TS on/off over the past month, or so, to enclose the bottom portion with 1/2" plywood so I can attach the Dust Right hose to the left side. The front & sides enclosed easily & are held in place with magnets. Today I finally got around to working out an enclosure scheme for the rear of the saw to accommodate the motor support, pulley belt, etc. In moving the blade from perpendicular to 45° to test out what was needed, I noticed that the lower portion of the pulley belt actually drags on the sheet metal saw housing from around the 10° to the 30° position. This made me curious to see if any other Ridgid 3650 TS owners have. or are, experiencing the same thing. I haven't tried to adjust the (2) pin slide yet, or anything else for that matter, as I have to call it quits for today.
Anyone else experience this?
