SOURCE: I have a craftman 12" band saw when to turn it on

It may be the start switch-that is one of the trouble shooting answers in the manual. (i.e motor not reaching speed)

Tires need replaced- may have a few other problems. try this
-unplug the saw spin the saw by hand, does track down the middle of both tires? also look at your guides and backup bearings.
I would take off blade-back off all guides and bearings -clean off any build up on tires- replace blade. now spin wheel ( always spin with the blade going down) if its tracking good go ahead and adjust guides and bearings to specs and try again. most likely the back up bearings are out of adjustment. they should not spin unless you are feeding material and it seems like the bottom one may be your problem.
But never the less it sounds like new tires are needed.

SOURCE: My band saw (craftsman 12" tilt head) stopped

I have the exact same saw. It sounds like the key stock came out of the pulley attached to the lower wheel. I will give you a quick rundown.
-unplug saw
-you will have to lay the saw on its side so you can remove the motor and drive belt.
-there are 2 seperate pulleys , the one connected to the motor and the one connected to the bottom wheel.
-loosen motor nuts and remove motor, pay close attention when removing motor 3 of the 4 studs have sleeve like spacers.
-once motor and belt are out of the way check the pulley on the bottom wheel,my guess is that the key stock came out and the pulley spins freely.
-loosen set screw,replace keystock and tighten.
-NOTE the keystock may have came out of the motor pully instead,check.

Now this next part is real important.
-once you get it figured out and are ready to put everything back together the 2 pulleys must be perfectly lined up, use a flat ruler, using your eye will not work.line the drive pulley up with the lower pulley. ( the pulley on the motor has a shoulder on it so when it is pushed towards motor it will be set in the right spot) .

It is either the pulley on the motor or the wheel that has lost its keystock.

It should be a easy fix,Good luck

I need to replace the drive belt

There are several steps to follow in changing/replacing the drive belt. You need to loosen/remove the drive wheel so you can replace the belt on the saw. Then you need to check and make adjustments on the tension on the belt. But it would be best if you can check the operator's manual for the saw.

Will Delta Belt fit Mastercraft Band Saw

If you still have the old belt, take it to a well equipped hardware or auto parts store for a replacement. If the previous belt is missing, you will need to measure the pulley 'V' width at the top of the 'V', the center to center measurement of the two shafts, and the outer diameters of the two pulleys. Hope this helps!

Have a 10''band saw with 254mm blabe need to no the size of blade to replace / alum blade glide so i can replace montgomery ward 10''band saw belt drive

Your 10 inch saw takes a 59 inch blade, I think, it will say on the package if you buy from lowes or home depot, no matter what the thickness is, 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, You don't want to go any bigger than that. The belt for the drive is just a v-belt, measure the old one or get the number off it, or just measure the distance around the pulleys. Hope this helps.
