It probably has an old drive belt, which might contribute to vibration. You might try changing it out for a a flexible link belt. You buy a length and then assemble it to exact length. I also think the lubrication is a big factor. My Laguna TS doesn't have a height lock and it is rock steady. The Laguna TS takes a slight effort to crank up but has a large, heavy wheel that reduces the effort needed to turn it. I think I'd also clean out the grease, particularly if the slipping increased or began after adding the grease fittings. Grease and TS mechanical parts don't mix well.

often those belts treat the symptom and not the cause...
best to look into the cause of the vibration 1st...
if it's and old belt that is causing vibration a new belt will fix that and be way cheaper too...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Don't know if it makes a difference, but the Dado listed under "Recommended Accessories" in the manual above is only 7" diameter - that might make a difference.

The grease is inside the trunion housing. The owner of InLine Industries sent me a video on how to install grease fittings. I installed the grease fittings about 10 years ago. A couple of years ago I had to replace the arbor bearing which required removing the trunion. The grease inside the trunion was free of saw dust.
I have a link belt.
I saw some recommendations to raise the blade to final position rather than lowering the blade into final position. I'll also check all fasteners on the underside of the saw. Somebody also recommended hanging a vise grip on the blade elevation crank to give it some weight to prevent it from moving from vibration.

The manufacturer's literature did not recommend the 8" dado set for an underpowered saw. Mine is only 1 hp.

Drill a hole somewhere near the hand wheel roughly level with it. Put a bolt i the hole that has at least 1/2" of unthreaded shoulder on it. Double nut the threaded portion so that the unthreaded portion stands out from the saw. Attach a bungee strap from the hand wheel to the bolt once adjusted. The tension on the bungee strap should be enough to hold it in place. That's about as simple a fix as I can think of. Easy and quick to attach and easy and quick to unattach.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
