Question about Saws

1 Answer

12" craftsman table saw 0 to 45 deg adjustment gears striped

My table saw has a direct drive (No belts)the blade connect directly on the motor arbor.As I cranked to a 45 deg. angle the gears and teeth were slipping throughout from 90deg. to 45deg.After cutting my work it would not crank back to 90 deg. It is stuck on 45 deg. I think the gears are just worn out. My dad purchased this saw around 1979. Any help on where to find the part in need or should I go ahead a purchase a new saw?

Sears has a site for parts and owner manuals at www.ManageMyHome.com.
It could be something is just loose and out of adjustment so that the teeth were able to slip on the gear. But I've never had a look at one of those to say for sure...oil always helps these things move easier...

The motor runs but the blade does not turn


UNPLUG the saw! IF your saw is a direct drive; either the blade is loose or the center of the blade is broken, Or the motor shaft has broke off. IF your saw is BELT DRIVEN, check the belt tension, or belt condition.

When I turn on the table saw, I can hear it humming as if the motor is hung up, but the blade does not move. With the power off, the blade turns freely. Also, I removed the belt and it makes the same...


With the blade and nut off the arbor, turn the motor on and VERY CAREFULLY turn or bump the arbor in the direction it is supposed to turn. If the motor spins up to speed you have a bad start capacitor. I have never been able to find start capacitors for Craftsman motors as a seperate part so you may have to replace the whole motor. Check with any local electrician shops first as they may have the capacitor you need.

I have an older Craftsman's Table Saw. I use it for a few minutes an then it looses its torque and can't saw no matter the thickness of the wood. Is it the motor?


Is it with belts connecting from motor to blade , or is it direct drive ( like in a circular saw) ? Belts do wear and need to be tightened or replaced. If it is direct drive, is could be the motor contact brushes on the armature that are burned or worn. They will allow the motor to run but not give the power when called for. Brushes are usuall y accessible from the outside of the motor from small plastic (bakelite) screw caps (2 of them). Finallt, it could be the blade lock nut and tension washer. This you will know because the blade will begin to snow and not cut the material, yet the motor sounds as if it is running standard speed.

New table saw, timber runninig off away from guide, saw blade running its own line,do i need to reset the guide.


The guide is called a fence. The fence should be positioned to the right of the blade. When using the fence, the largest part of the board goes between the blade and fence. Fences are typically have some relief toward the end, so you don't get the blade cutting on it's way down, and then cutting again on it's way up.

I have an old craftsman table saw. i believe the "brake" or gears a shot. the saw runs very loud and shakes. now no matter how much i tighten the blade the nut loosens after one cut.


With the saw unplugged and the blade tightened, using your fingers try to wiggle the blade side to side and lift it up and down. Other than a little flexing of the blade, there should be no movement. If you have much movement you have a problem and the saw is dangerous. If this is a belt-driven saw, then you may be able to replace the bearings on the arbor (the shaft the saw mounts to) or you may have to replace the whole arbor. If this is a direct-drive saw (the saw mounts directly on the motor shaft) then the bearings that have failed are in the motor and you are less likely to be able find and install replacement bearings. If you find the model number of your saw, you might be able to find drawings and replacement parts on this site:

I have recently replaced my 29 year old craftsman 10" table saw with a new switch. In trying to turn it on, the motor hummed, slightly oscilated and tripped out the wall breaker. I checked the Sears parts...


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

Motor base needed for 10" table saw


My 10" Craftsman saw started life with a 1 hp motor. I'm on number 3 motor which is 1 1/2 or 2 hp. 1 hp seems to weak. The pulley diameter is about 2". The motor needs to rotate as the blade is moved from vertical. Mine is mounted to back of the blade arbor. The mounts needs to be adjustable for adjusting tension to the belt. McMaster Carr would have the start of a motor and base.

Two drive configurations


Direct-Drive Motors are linked directly to the blade and transfer all of the motor’s power to the blade. Belt-Drive Motors have a belt that transfers power from the motor to the blade. In belt drive systems, the motor can be offset away from sawdust generated during operation, causing the motor last longer. Belt drive systems require slightly more preventive maintenance than direct drive systems. So you'll need to check the belts for wear and proper tension periodically.
