Could be many things going on in there from a bad belt to a bent wheel. At almost 30 years old have you considered replacement. A new high efficient furnace would more than likely pay for itself in savings in a matter of 5 years or so.

Have you physically watch the furnace start up to see wherethe noise is originating from?
