    Icon4 Read this. It might save your life.

    I went to use my table saw today & noticed the belt was way too loose for some reason.
    I checked it out & the hex screw that holds the pulley on the motor had loosened up & the pulley itself almost fell off in my hands.
    I got my hex wrenches & tightened it back up, making sure the key way was in it's proper place.
    I tightened up the belt while I was at it.

    Good thing I noticed the belt was too loose to use before I fired it up. If I had went ahead & just used the saw the way it was, it could have been a real disaster in the making.

    Do yourself a favor. Check all the pulleys, belts, knobs, etc. before you use your power tools.
    I narrowly avoided a real disaster. You might too.

    I was glad I caught it before I ended up with a face full of steel pulley flying at 100 mph.

    OK, maybe a little too dramatic, but it gets my point across.
    I almost had a problem & I posted it as a warning to others to
    check your tools before you use them is all.
