My Delta saw runs and cuts fine. When I shut off my Delta 36-725T2, as it is slowing down it has appx a 1/2 second noise before stopping, sort of like a brake moan. This saw does have a brake but it has never made noise until the last few days. Someone had a similar problem and I searched the forums but can’t find it. Anyone have this problem ? Any ideas?

AFAIK, that saw does not have any breaking system… where did you get that info? What you are hearing is most likely the centrifugal switch snapping back, which is very common.

Brake pads are listed in the parts diagram at the rear of the motor, item # 57 and also I recieved an email a few minutes ago and the tech from delta said it does have a brake, but the noise shouldn’t be problem if it occurs slowing down.

Interesting to know… apparently they changed out the motor between the original 36-725 and the newer ‘T2’ model. They do mention the new motor in the official Delta video showing the new features, but don’t mention any kind of brake on the motor (and the original machine didn’t have one).

It’s also good to see that Delta support was responsive to your query – that is a good sign ;)

PS: Even a search for the word ‘brake’ in the users manual returns zero results!
