Need owners manual for a craftsman band / need help troubleshoot

This saw was my fathers, can not find manual for it. Craftsmans web site is a lost cause. The blade will not stay on the thrust bearings. No matter how I adjust them, I only get about 30 seconds until the blade runs off. I figured the manual should have some basic troubleshooting to hopefully ease my pain.

    I have my deceased huband's band saw model 113.248321 and cannot locate the manual. The band saw came off track and I don't know how to open the unit to make the proper adjustments.

Hi, On all bandsaws, it's the pitch of the wheels that determine the position of the blade. The top wheel should be adjustable for pitch, and blade tightness.
The blade should only contact the thrust bearings when you are cutting, not when it is idling. No sense in wearing out the bearings and blade while idling.

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.

You may look up to ebay or search on google. I actually order band saw parts with www.bandsawparts.com but I think they don't have the miter gauge for your bandsaw model.
