table saw belt stretch
I'm a new member today.
I have a delta 36-980 table saw new a months ago, I like it very much. I have it in my garage and live in a cold climate. It has been 15- 20 degrees here. The belt has tention by just the motor hanging on the bracket and gravity. I was using the saw and the belt seemed to streach allowing the motor to hang all the way down. Causing the belt to bind and almost stopping the blade before I turned it off.
Is this happening from the cold causing the belt to stretch??
