@weilworks26: @woodshaver101 no havent. will do next time I’m at work. belts should be pretty tight right? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs I have one of the Eureka track saws. It’s not as good as the Festool, Makita or DeWalt, but it is very nice. Worth 100 #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @weilworks26 not to tight,but check the pulleys and the allignment,if it still stalls it may be the motor. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: yes Simple Green #woodchat

@Tumblewood: It didnt work, but, I had to pee #woodchat

@woodshaver101: mr clean and bleach and hot water will eat cosmolin #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @DyamiPlotke It is actually a rail system and not a track saw. I have one and like it. In fact all of the ones you named are good. #woodchat
