Carriage Bearings are Bad

Crafstman doesn't have them in stock anymore and I can't find anyone in the general bearing business that has them.
HEIM 633 bearing - radial sperical - apparently specially made for SEARS Craftsman.
Is there ny substitute?

Here are 2 links for Heim. If you can't find what you need, try an industrial supply cross reference. A good bearing supplier should be able to match you up with measurements as well as numbers. Check with the maintenance supervisor of a local manufacturer to see where they get their bearings.

Need bearings for transpower tsc-10hk table saw

IF you take the bearings to a good autoparts store or a bearing supply shop, they can look them up or they can micrometer them and find substitutes. This is a lot more productive then trying to locate a dealer or service center.

When i turn off my table 10'' 315.218060 saw makes alot grinding noise

You probably need to replace the bearings on the arbor shaft. If you have the means to disassemble and press the bearings off, and you can precisely measure the ID, OD and Width of them (there will be two of them and they are probably both the same) you can buy replacement bearings on-line pretty cheap. Make sure you buy sealed bearings. These will be standard bearings, which you don't have to buy as replacements from Sears.

Grinding noise when it's running

's the bearings that are going bad, you can go on the Hitachi web site, put in model # parts breakdown, which will show you the chop saw torn apart and how it comes apart the bearing that goes bad is the one nearest the blade because it gets greater pressure applied to it, I would replace both bearings while you have it apart. and you can order the bearing while on the web site. Good Luck.

Looking for a Mastercraft table saw motor, part number OQEF

Sears has raised the price on that motor. It's $162.99 now. There is a 99% chance that you really only need new bearings, not the whole motor. They fail regularly in smoky, noisy, horrible manner. You can buy a better quality bearing here: The original ZZ bearing is a "shielded" bearing. These RS replacements are "sealed". The difference means sawdust powder no longer gets trapped under the shield to destroy the bearings.

Runs one or two mintues then borgs down

Sounds like you may have dirty bearings on the motor or the arbor shaft. When the bearings heat up it causes expansion thus slowing the saw. try to lube the bearings with some penetrating oil, Better yet, get some BelRay chain lube. It will penetrate like WD40 but will firm up like grease give you better lubrication for the bearings.

I have a 1680 scrollsaw and no manual. Where is oiling required?



Lubricate the arm bearings with oil after 10 hours of use.

Re-oil after every 50 hours of use or whenever there is a

squeak coming from the bearings.


1. Turn saw on its side (Fig. 18).

2. Remove rubber plug to expose bronze bearing.

3. Squirt a generous amount of SAE 20 oil around the shaft

end and bronze bearing.

4. Let the oil soak in overnight in this condition.

5. Next day repeat the above procedure for the opposite
side of the saw.

You can get the manual on the link below. scrool down to product details to get it.

Good Luck

Im trying to repair my crafstman table saw model #137.248830. Replacing the armature but cannot get the gears to line up correctly am i missing something?

I would recheck the part number for the armature to ensure they have the same number and diameter of teeth. once you install the bearings this part should easily slide into the diaphragm and there is no alignment of the gears necessary. Let me know if I can be of more assistance.

On my hitachi table saw mod. c10fr sounds like the bearing is bad

Went to their site and they don't offer just the bearings for the motor but sell as an assembly. If this tool is fairly new I would return if not what you can do is remove the motor and pull the armature with the bearings out and then go to a repair center and match them up. These bearings are numbered with a universal code so it should not be that hard. Let me know if you still need help and if I have answered your question would you please rate my response accordingly.

Hi , i have a skilsaw 3400,but the blade is to hard when hand turning it, want to know if it uses ball bearing or another stuff. thanks. pedro

If it is direct drive blade mounted to motor) you will have to remove the motor and check the bearings. Most newer electric motors have sealed bearings. I would suggest that you remove the motor and take it ot an electrical shop (call around first) and have them replace the bearings, clean it up and replace the carbon brushes. Anothe alternative is look for a replacement motor through places like Grangers, Norther Tools, etc.

If it is belt driving check all the components (pulle bearings, etc) for friction.

good luck....gary
