Drill press is fixed--lesson learned

New belts arrived on time, we cleaned up all the debris and filed down the rough spot on one of the pulleys that we think caused all the trouble.

The first thing I noticed was the tremendous decrease in vibration when I sanded.  I had assumed it was me, or the sanders, but it must have been the failing belt.

Lesson learned: when tools start sounding or acting "funny", that's a signal to check out belts, tighten nuts, and attend to anything that could be a source of the problem before it gets worse.
