I did replace the belts but just blew out and added some lubricant from the outside of the bearings to loosen them for the time being. Trying not to spend money until I’ve identified all the issues! The vibrations are not completely terrible but I was hoping for it the purr with the new belts.

Also, it did trip the breaker on an extension cord – but with the larger wiring on a short length it seems okay! I must be riding offly close to the breaker limit. I have not had it shut down under load.

Would it run on a single leg of 240V? If so, I imagine this would cause a lot of vibration? It does run now and is definitely on a 120V plug. I just have to flip the magnetic starter to get it started.

edit – forgot the picture!
