Hey, Fred – I’d already seen that article, and checked the stop collar.

The pulley screws are a bit of a mystery to me. While I had the belts off, I tried to check the screws, but couldn’t find them. I did find some holes where screws might go (though I couldn’t tell whether they were threaded or not), but there were 4 of these (2 each on the first and third pulleys). I don’t think these are screw holes, though, and it’s kind of hard to believe that I’d be missing all 4 on a 7 year old saw that’s seen little use.

Anyway, the clunk is annoying (and causes me to flunk the nickel test) but not a showstopper; the saw still works fine. I think I’ll consider finding the cause to be a background task from here on out.
