Question about Craftsman Band Saws

Band Saw Blade won't stay on

Recently obtained a Craftsman 10" Band Saw Model 113.244513. The blade was not on it. Found a manual online and thought I did everything according to the directions but every time I turn it on the blade runs off the wheels.

    The directions said to align the back of the saw blade to within 3/32ths of the rotating guide, and I thought I had this about right. Should I try again to get this closer to the blade. Not sure what you mean by bottom wheel tilt adjustment? Thanks, Jim Carlan

    Thank everyone who offered a solution to this problem. Finally solved it. Although the directions in the operators manual does not say this, the solution was that the upper wheel must be loosened by means of a screwdriver, then the tension adjusted, then the wheel must be tightened again. First time I did this blade stayed on and tracked perfectly. Saw now cuts like new. Thanks, again all who responded. Jim Carlan

A lot of the larger band saws, and I don't know about your particular model, has an ajustment on the bottom wheel that tilts the wheel in order to track the blade. It is right at the axle and tilts it from there.  If the back guide is a roller bearing I woud think you would want to roll all of the time.  If a solid bearing block natually a small space where it  will not hit is enough.

Check this blog first. Are you installing a new blade? If the blade is running backwards, you just have to reverse it, turn inside out. Try watching the Alex Snodgrass' Youtube video Band Saw Tune Up .

I have a 12" Sears - Craftsman - Band Saw and the blade keeps coming off. How do I install a new blade and keep it on?


Two potential issues here:

a.) You probably need to align your bandsaw wheels. Here's a link to a craftsman 12" bandsaw manual. Assuming you have model 113243310, 113243311, 113243300, or a similar model, read over page 12-14 "Installing the blade". Specifically, look at section 10 about adjusting the tracking.

Having the blade guides set properly is important too. A thrust bearing (the one up top, behind the blade) that's set too far forward can push the blade off the wheels too.

b.) If it's flat out too loose and you can't get it tight, the blade might be too long. It's worth double checking your manual to confirm you are supposed to be using an 80" blade and double checking the blade package to make sure you actually have an 80" blade.
