This ever happen to anyone?
Today I got my 1st big scare on my Delta TS, In over 30 yrs I never had this happen.
I was cutting stock for wifey's birthday gift, ( new bigger jewelry box) I shut the TS off heard a bang and then something hard hitting the insides of the collection area. Loud through the ear protection!
"That doesn't sound good!"
Once I pulled the throat plate out I saw a key sitting at the mouth of the dust chute. The motor pully key insert screws came loose, (after 6 yrs), the key slid out, 2" worth of sliding out.
Scared the crap out of me, (almost). Took about 20 minutes to figure out how to pull the motor, replace the key and put it back.
Never bite the hand that looks dirty!
