I picked up a 10" 80 tooth Freud Diablo blade for my table saw this
weekend, and I noticed that when I turn it on, the blade wobbles a bit
right at the start and when slowing down, but seems pretty solid when
the saw is running at speed. This is a "narrow-kerf" blade, so I'm
guessing that the wobble is due to the thinner material used in
manufacturing (unless the carbide is the only thing that is thinner?)
I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if so, does a
blade stabilizer help, or is there something odd going on with my saw?
It is pretty cold down in the shop right now, and it is possible that
the belt is getting stiff, but the Delta blade that I had in there
before never had this problem. At any rate, the cuts the thing makes
are absolutely beautiful, so I was planning on nabbing another one for
my miter saw, and it'd be good to know if I'm going to need a
stabilizer for each of them in advance so I can save myself extra
trips to the hardware store!
