Proper Band Saw Blade

I have a Sears Band Saw 720.24250 and need an owner's manual. The saw is a table top model and has 3 pulleys. The electic Sears motor to it is a 1/6 hp model no. 113.23430. The pulleys are 6 in diameter and the blade I had made for it doesn't stay on the pulleys. I think I need a thinner more pliable blade.

Please can you tell me how to fit a new blade. Is there an information leaflet any where to be found.


well you didn't mention a model or even mfg. so all I can give you is a general method of changing a blade on a std bandsaw

1st: locate the table cutouts , there are sometimes two of these , slide them out to leave a gap in table
2nd open top and bottom blade cover , swing back (this is a good time to clean this out)
3rd locate the blade tension knob this is always on the opposite side you stand on to use saw(reason is next)
4th slowly back off tension of saw blade , till blade falls off top or bottom wheel Or both
5th carefully feed the old blade out of saw guides top and bottom till blade comes out free, careful even old blades can still cut you
6th remove new blade from package (caution !!! spring steel) do not k-##-k the blade get it till teeth of blade are all on one side, might take a bit of fenniest to do so
7th slide new blade into saw guides(teeth out towards operator position) , top and bottom , I use a bit of sticky tape to hold mine there (it's 179 inches long) position the new blade to top and bottom pulleys (again sticky tape helps a lot)
8th slowly tighten the tension pulley (top) till the blade stays there all by itself No tape , remove all tape now , hard to do later
9th slowly turn the pulleys over by hand as you tension the blade , this produces a even tension and your less likely to break the new blade , continue till blade rides in center of both pulleys or it's pretty tight , I flick it with my fingernail if it rings (like a guitar) then its tight enough (I know the sound well)
10th ck all your saw guides for proper clearance , I use a piece of note paper , u should just be able to get it in along the side , but blade cant be aloud to twist at all , there are usually three guides on both top and bottom
11th close all covers up replace table cutout and run saw if it walks the blade off then ck your pulley alignments and the tires on rim of them ,tires do go bad every 500 hours or so keep a set on hand 4 fast swap out

These lightweight saws can be somewhat problematic in this respect. They have a tendency to come out of adjustment as they are moved about.
First, make sure the blade you're using is true and has little runout. You can check this using a micrometer, or simply marking a tooth and spinning the blade by hand (power unplugged) to see if the blade runs true or wavers in its path. If the blade is warped or bent the problem is probably there rather than the table.
Second, check to make sure the fence is properly adjusted, parallel to the mitre slots. If the fence is out of adjustment, the path of the material relative to the blade will not be parallel, and this can cause poor cuts.
Third, hope it's one of the first two. If not, set a day or weekend aside to work on the saw. Get some good light and flip it over on a table or horses so you can see what you're doing. Have the parts diagram and owner's manual on hand.
You'll need to loosen the bolts that hold the table top against the saw mechanism beneath the top, and shift the saw relative to the top in the desired direction to correct for the out-of true path of the blade relative to the table top. On some lighter saws like yours, this entails re-adjusting most of the saw mechanisms to run true, as they are frequently independently bolted to the underside of the table and not unified construction that moves as a single piece.
You have to shift the saw slightly in the required direction, check the runout of the blade, then repeat until you get it right. If you're skilled and you don't mind standing on your head, you can do this with the saw in position.
There are many excellent articles online that detail this procedure if you search google for "table saw tune up", so I won't elaborate on the details. Try to find one that has a saw similar to yours as an example. Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I need a manual for an old Sears Band Saw Model #534.01120


Does it look like this? Unfortunately, they don't have a manual that I could find. But you might like to post your request in the forums there, as they get some traffic from aficionados of old tools with wile and know how.
It might help you also to google Dunlap & PowerKing for the manual.
As far as tuning it up goes...
Check each of the wheels' "bearings" to begin with, to ensure they are running smoothly and as true as possible, without end play or wobble. Then use straightedges and flat jointed boards to line up the three pulleys as much in a single flat plane as possible, by shifting shims, etc. (It may behoove you to remove the table out of the picture to begin with, if possible, so you can get the wheels lined up well with one another, then replace the table once the blade will track.)
The adjustments on a three wheel system can be a little more delicate and temperamental than on a standard 14" bandsaw, so be moderate in your tracking adjustments, and crank the wheels by hand to begin with as you work the tension up on the blade, checking constantly to keep the blade running as close to the center of all three tires as possible. Don't worry about the blade guides at all until you get the blade running on the wheels well. Then move the backed off guide blocks and backing bearings into place. They are meant, after all, to keep the blade from deflecting, not to force it into position.
That's my quick advice for how to tune it up.
Good luck. It looks like a beaut!
