Question about Saws
The saw is a model 119.224000 about seven years old. Sears sells 89.5 in. blades in .1/4 in and 3/8 in widths in single packages. Why do you have to buy 3 blades to get the one I need
I knew a site where they custom blades . You can get bandsaw blades in which you do not need to purchase 3 or more. Try checking www.sawblade.com . You can give them a call perhaps.

I was just on Sears website and if you go to the bottom of page you can link over to Sears Parts Direct and type in your model number and you should be able to get it online. Good luck

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!
