SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: 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!

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

Replace guide bearings on jwbs-18 saw


" That one will be a press fit onto that eccentric shaft. Small bearings like that are easy to drive off with a suitable punch or mandrel. Simply stand it up in the jaws of a vise so the jaw edges contact the outer rim of the bearing and use a hammer to drive it out. Put a washer or similar bit of metal between the shaft end and the punch to protect the face."
Make sure before you put the new bearing on that the shaft is clean and smooth.

I have a clarke 12ins bandsaw i do not know if the blade should be fitted over the drivebelt or where it is fitted now. along side running on the metal wheel can you help .thanks


The blade must be running on the band wheel. Drive belt is only responsible for rotation of the wheel.
Try checking some videos on youtube.I believe you can find some videos that can help you out.

Tire comes off top wheel almost all the time. Tire comes off bottem wheel sometimes. Don't know how to set up this saw.


My jet bandsaw did same thing only fix was new tires .Tires are supposed to be tite on wheel .get wood dowels between tire and wheel and roll new tire onto wheel. If desperate could glue on with weather strip adhesive.put bandsaw blade on both tires spin wheels with power off till blade is running in center of wheel by adjusting top wheel in or out. When done adjust blade guides to blade and bearings to back of blade .This is top and bottom of cutting area

MBS 240/E proxxon bandsaw


the 24 TPI is the one to use. It sounds as if the blade is running to fast and over heating the blade and causing it to lose the temper in the balde steel. Try slowing the blade speed down if you can. Also you can try putting some cutting oil on the balde to stop it from clogging up. You can also rig up a small air line to blow on the cutting area to cool it down and remove the metal chips. I've also applied some wax to the blade every so often. A candle will work for this too. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr

Band saw blade wanders.


cut freehand. A bandsaw blade will always run off to one side or the other, even using a fence.

The rip fence is intended for re-sawing only, and very thin strips
