I sent back to the distributor. It cost 1/3 of the value of a new saw. They fixed but there are also some new inconveniences. Spoiled tilt mechanism.

They were supposed to fix it, not create new problems. Complain and suggest they pay shipping this time. Otherwise you will let everyone on this forum know about the poor CS.

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.

If it is making a mechanical "knocking sound" along with the vibration when you are not cutting anything, it may be the lower clamp. I found on my Excalibur that if the lower adjusting knob you turn isn't level with the floor then it will hit the bottom of the table when running. To adjust it you need to turn the turn the set screw on the left side (as you are facing it the saw). Different number blades are thicker than others which causes the problem depending on the blade, a #3, #5, #7 will cause the adjusting knob to be in a different orientation. Looking from the side at the knob should be at 9:00 to 3:00 clock orientation. If it is at 12:00 to 6:00 clock orientation it will probably knock and cause the table to vibrate.

If this isn't clear, I can post a picture tomorrow.

No noise Steve just bouncing. It did this before but I can't remember where the adjustment had to be made to stop the severe bouncing or shaking. In addition, I can't cut at 45 degree like I should be able to, because it rubs/cuts the table. Done that since I got it

Created this yesterday, but couldn't upload from anywhere. Let's hope this works

In your video I can hear the knocking of the knob hitting the table, that is also why the table is bouncing at the front. I just went out an took a picture of mine. It is close to getting the knock/vibration. If that knob points are vertical, then it does the same as yours.

Tilting the table down on the right only makes this worse.

Without the knob in there it still bounces Steve. It's another area that likes to come loose that needs tightening but I don't remember where. Had to have it done before; and with all the moving around we've done I'm not surprised it's loose again

This table is real bouncing > flexible so much?
Or is camera synchronization effect?

I think that's the camera with the wave effects. But the table is shuttering up and down violently. I had to press down with all my might while pushing the wood to cut
