I have Sears- Craftsman 10" band saw #113.244510. after installing new tire the blade tracks to the rear. Have followed manual but cannot solve proble- any suggestions?


Check this blog first. Are you installing a new blade? If the blade is running backwards, you just have to reverse it, turn inside out. Try watching the Alex Snodgrass' Youtube video Band Saw Tune Up .

Sears manual model103.24550


Check this informative article about installing band saw blade . However, I am in doubt if that article could really help you in properly replacing the blade. But you may use it as your reference. I can refer you also to sears support site or to vintagemachinery . I am not sure how old your band saw is , you may also visit owwm.org or make posts on different forum sites. If you have questions, you can post your comment to this thread.

My Craftsman Bandsaw's (Model 113.243310) tension wheel is bouncing the blade off every time I turn it on. Any suggestions?


Please be sure that your put correct tension on the blade. Check the blade guides and check if the blade is tracking
properly. Make sure the tires are clean. If they're well worn out, change them . You may try to install new blades too.

Where is the tracking adjustment on the Craftsman 12inch Tilt Head Bandsaw?


The tracking adjustment is on the top wheel in the middle-spin the wheel by hand ( please make sure its unplugged first ) if the blades moves towards the front of the saw turn 1/4 turn clockwise and turn counterclockwise if its going the other way. remember that alot of things can cause your blade not to track right. I would back off all guides and rollers,top and bottom,adjust the tracking -then move guides and rollers back in. also the rule of thumb on your guides is not to touch the blade but to be as close as possible-make sure they are both even-set back 1/32 from the gulliet i.e the deepest part of the blade teeth. One other thing is the bearing in the back(back up bearing) should not touch the blade when wood is NOT going through (set it close,but not touching).

Sorry for the long answer but I've been there-get the manual and it shows it alot better.

I have a 12" Sears - Craftsman - Band Saw and the blade keeps coming off. How do I install a new blade and keep it on?


Two potential issues here:

a.) You probably need to align your bandsaw wheels. Here's a link to a craftsman 12" bandsaw manual. Assuming you have model 113243310, 113243311, 113243300, or a similar model, read over page 12-14 "Installing the blade". Specifically, look at section 10 about adjusting the tracking.

Having the blade guides set properly is important too. A thrust bearing (the one up top, behind the blade) that's set too far forward can push the blade off the wheels too.

b.) If it's flat out too loose and you can't get it tight, the blade might be too long. It's worth double checking your manual to confirm you are supposed to be using an 80" blade and double checking the blade package to make sure you actually have an 80" blade.

I am changing the saw blade on 12 inch Craftsman bandsaw


Go to: Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. This will bring you a series of parts drawings and possibly an owner's manual. Generally, adjustment is provided for the upper wheel only--use hand power to check the tracking performance. Good luck!

Band Saw Blade won't stay on


A lot of the larger band saws, and I don't know about your particular model, has an ajustment on the bottom wheel that tilts the wheel in order to track the blade. It is right at the axle and tilts it from there.  If the back guide is a roller bearing I woud think you would want to roll all of the time.  If a solid bearing block natually a small space where it  will not hit is enough.
