It doesn’t make any difference how I touch the wood to the belt. I tried end grain and thought that could be a problem so I then tried it with the grain. I tried both thin and thick pieces. I have tried both soft and hardwood. The wood or how it is oriented does not appear to make any difference to the slapping or nocking or vibration or pushing back that I get. It doesn’t make any different how I touch the wood to the belt.
As I said I will check the wheels tomorrow , I will measure the distance between the belt and table when the belt is turned by my hand to see if there is s difference at any point and I will put a different type of belt on tomorrow and see if the problem goes away which would suggest it is the Abranet Mesh itself is the problem.
