Looks like a beast, John! What other mods did you make to it? Mine was on a home-built stand that I needed to stiffen up as the whole thing would shake like crazy when the saw got going, and had I kept it I'd probably have slowed it down some, which would have also helped the shaking. The blade advancement mechanism also needed some work--occasionally it would jump teeth, with the result that the saw would really bite into the workpiece, which usually snapped the blade. Still, an automatic saw of any sort is a huge step forward for a small shop--it enables you to do fabrications that you just wouldn't attempt if it meant sawing all the pieces by hand!

I more than doubled the main pully size and that slowed it down a lot. It still cuts just as fast slow and there us no walking of the saw lol. Yeah mine used to walk across the shop too. I also had a lot of gear noise. I replaced the bushings in all the shafts and pins. Easy job they were all standard size at the hardware store. There are 4 screws on top the arm and 4 on one side. Those screws adjust slop in the cut arm. Make sure the brass plates inside the arm are good and tighten that up. Took care of all the slop in mine. She cuts quiet and smooth now. Oh and don't bother buying blades for this type if saw. I just buy regular band saw blades and cut them into pieces. Use a cut off wheel since blade are High carbon steel.
