I had thought of chain saw, but figured no one would try to use link
belt on the chain saw. Cabinet saw works as well. In any case maybe we
could assume some form of table saw. Sort of disappoints me. I thought
maybe there was another tool that I didn't know about that I could buy.
Drill press, shapers, band saws, jointers,table saws, compressors
(air), fans, etc. There are a lot of items that deserve a link belt. I
have them on all my belt driven machines.

Just installed one today on my Delta CS.
Definitely less vibration BUT I find the whirring of the belt a bit
Also just installed a zero-clearance insert and the blade rubs
slightly against the insert making even more noise. have raised and
lowered the blade several times is the contact is still there.
Is all this noise going to go away eventually?

If your insert isn't a real tight fit, you might try
loosening the mounting screws, shoving it one way as far as
you can, then raising the blade, then repeating in the other
If you can't do that, try putting a thin shim behind your
blade and raising it, then removing the shim.
Your cabinet saw uses a V-groove pulley ? Don't most use those
flat, wider belts?
Incidentally, I'm a huge shill for link belts. A link belt was the first
and last fix for my drill press (reduced vibration dramatically). Its
kind of like a car that shudders or shimmies when you drive it. How
long can you put up with that when you know all you have to do is
replace a warped tire. Most of the time its the most bang for the
buck you can get when you're looking to reduce vibration.
If *I* was a tool maker, I sure wouldn't want someone's perception
of a tool I designed to be that of a wobbly, substandard contraption.
Not over a few cents worth of polyurethane elastomer / polyester...
They should include segmented belts as standard equipment with
any induction tool.
The software said it ran under Windows 98/NT/2000, or better.
So I installed it on Linux...
