I ordered the above saw and having never used a mitre saw before I wasn't sure what to expect. When starting up the blade there is a loud vibrating noise which lasts for about 1 - 2 seconds until the blade gets up to speed and you can also feel the vibration through the handle quite a lot. As the blade slows down to a stop I can see the centre bold which holds the blade in place does not look quite central on the blade itself, I'm not sure if its this thats causing the problem. I take it this is not normal?

If anyone can offer any advice or suggestions, I would very much appreciate it.

I have contacted anglia power tools where I bought it from and they have agreed to pick it up to have a look at it, but I'm just worrying they might tell me nothing is wrong with it and send it back.

Thanks a lot

it certainly sounds like a blade vibration issue. Is the blade properly seated on the arbor and firmly clamped in place? Vibration can occur when the blae is not properly seated and clamped-up.

Could also be that the blade has the wrong bore or that there is a problem with the blade washer (if fitted). It might be that the blade washer is too thick for that particular blade. What diameter in the saw arbor and what is the bore of the blade?

Another possibility, rare on a new machine, might be that the blade is either bent or out of balance. The only way to test that one out is to fit another (new) blade

Anglia power tools area reputable company (In my experience) and will sort you out if there is a problem.
