Just upgraded my Delta Contractors TS with Fenner Twist Belt (1/2").
Alot less vibration but lots more noise, sounds almost like a worn
Pulleys are inline, lenght is identical to the Delta belt, direction
as per instructions, bearings ok. Is this normal? Is the link belt
just taking a while to bed in? Any ideas much appreciated.

Yup. Sounds about right. I've had one on my bandsaw for long enough that
it should definitely be broken in by now. It's on in the correct
direction, and it's the right size and so forth. Vibration was
*dramatically* reduced, but now it makes this sort of continuous swooshing
noise. I wouldn't say it sounds like a worn bearing. More like dry gears.
I'm used to it. I don't miss the vibration. That thing used to jimmy jammy
all over the place.

You've really got a burr under your saddle about that, don't you? Ever wonder
why you're the *only* guy who had that problem?

I remember a 'whirring' noise when my belt was new. I believe it
dissipated (or I got used to it) after a couple weeks or so of
moderate use. Double check the instructions to be sure you don't have
it on backwards - it's supposed to be installed the opposite way then
I expected it to be. Also, be sure it's not rubbing on the sheet
metal belt guard that's attached over the motor pulley.
