Anyone have a fairly new Laguna Fusion 2 tablesaw? I bought mine April 2020 and have lightly used it since as a hobbyist. I recently had issues cutting consistent miter joints and noticed that the motor bracket assembly had a fair amount of play in it. I am able to “jiggle” the motor back and forth when the motor housing cover is removed. There is an audible “klunk” sound PLUS the blade moves about .01” on my dial indicator. I’ve got a call into Laguna tech support but I’m wondering if any Fusion 2 owners have the same issue? Thanks for any input,
Steve

Some saws use the motor weight as a tensioning device. Naturally things bounce around at start and stop. Crapsman saws were notorious for this.

Is the belt tensioner bolt tight.

If you notice this video is just one of 18 videos on this saw.
