Ok this is a stealth gloat. But since I don't have pictures it may not have happened!
I just finished moving my 650 into my basement shop. Pretty easy overall, but I'll wait until I post the picts to tell you about that.
The question I have for the General owners is my saw thumps a little at start up. The belts seem fine, I get about a 2 inch separation when I squeeze them together and the twist about a 1/4 of a turn. I remember reading in other posts that some motors tend to thump. Is this normal for the Baldor and General saws? How tight should the belts be?
Overall the saw is impeccable! The fit/finish and tolerences are fantastic. This is going to be one of my favorite tools.
