Been away from a computer for a while.   I buy a lot of this type of thing from Automation Direct.  Good prices, same day shipping.

I experienced the same thing and to the extreme that you are. I was baffled and could not figure out what was the issue. I broke down every part of the saw and made sure that there was no play or slop in the parts. Reassembled the saw and put in a new blade and still it bent the blade and jammed the saw to the point that it kicked the breaker. I was at a lost for a solution. One day I grabbed the blade and pulled / pushed it back and forth...I noticed a very little play in the arbor shaft. So I took a look at the bearings they looked fine but since the price for new ones were not that bad I replaced both of them. That did the trick I have not had any problems with blades bending or jamming since. I can not believe how little play there was but it was noticeable. The seals in the pillow block bearings were still intact...just that little amount of back and forth movement when I pushed and pulled the blade.

The saw is an older Loratone 10" saw.

I just started cutting slab with on older Star Beacon (Diamond Star), and a new blade.
After a few perfect cuts, I had a jam up due to the d**g clamp being loose.
Since then NOTHING CUTS without burning up a belt after a couple of minutes or so. (if I'm not fast enough).
Looks like I need to align the feed rail to the blade if possible... and buy a new blade.
Wish there was a way to bang these old blades back!!

Don how about a link for that overheating switch? It sounds like a great solution!

That belt looks familiar. I bought some at Harbor Freight. They really cut the vibration like magic.
The other day my blade stuck while cutting - I was a few feet away but heard the "silence".
Ran over in time to turn the motor off. Just melted the belt a bit. Still useable but had to remove a link because the heat stretched it a bit.
