Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw
Will new motor bushings fix this
Maybe, but first rule out several other things. Has the saw been recently overloaded - heavy cuts with a dull blade? You may have a partially burnt-out motor (which means the insulation on the wire in the windings has partially melted.) Has it been used recently or used now with an extension cord or to an outlet wired with 15 ga wire? Is the saw arbor hard to turn by hand (with the belt removed)? Does the motor overheat with no load (remove the belt and let it run for 10 minutes)? Try running the saw with the belt on, but not cutting for 10 minutes.

You can try Sears but they can be a bit pricey. I use to send out motors for a factory I worked in to a rebuilder who would even do new windings. Check in your area for a rebuilder, As for the replacement being a Sears unit they may have a similar motor in stock. Good luck.

On the motors I deal with there is a series of numbers that identify the shaft size, hp and all other requirements. I would try and contact a local Grainger and see if they can help, if not try in the yellow pages for a motor repair shop in your area and sometimes they can get you one. Good luck

SOURCE: breaker trips after 15 seconds
sounds like you have a direct short in the tool or possibly the breaker is weak. I would try another outlet first to see if it does it again. Also look at other products on the same circuit that might over load the breaker. If it does then I would have to think it is the tool and needs to be put on a special tester to check for dielectric failure.

You may find a replacement motor on ebay. I deal in Craftsman Belt drive table saws, yours looks to be a direct drive. Sorry I wouldn't be much help with those, Jim

Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to www.searspartsdirect.com
