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 .

SOURCE: Band Saw Blade won't stay on

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.

that is where I would look first, you would need your model number and go to Searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to find and order the replacement rubber tires and that should take care of your problem

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.

SOURCE: My band saw (craftsman 12" tilt head) stopped

Hello'
I have the exact same saw. It sounds like the key stock came out of the pulley attached to the lower wheel. I will give you a quick rundown.
-unplug saw
-you will have to lay the saw on its side so you can remove the motor and drive belt.
-there are 2 seperate pulleys , the one connected to the motor and the one connected to the bottom wheel.
-loosen motor nuts and remove motor, pay close attention when removing motor 3 of the 4 studs have sleeve like spacers.
-once motor and belt are out of the way check the pulley on the bottom wheel,my guess is that the key stock came out and the pulley spins freely.
-loosen set screw,replace keystock and tighten.
-NOTE the keystock may have came out of the motor pully instead,check.

Now this next part is real important.
-once you get it figured out and are ready to put everything back together the 2 pulleys must be perfectly lined up, use a flat ruler, using your eye will not work.line the drive pulley up with the lower pulley. ( the pulley on the motor has a shoulder on it so when it is pushed towards motor it will be set in the right spot) .

It is either the pulley on the motor or the wheel that has lost its keystock.

It should be a easy fix,Good luck

Check this informative article about installing band saw blade . However, I am in doubt if that article could really help you in properly replacing the blade. But you may use it as your reference. I can refer you also to sears support site or to vintagemachinery . I am not sure how old your band saw is , you may also visit owwm.org or make posts on different forum sites. If you have questions, you can post your comment to this thread.

My Craftsman Bandsaw's (Model 113.243310) tension wheel is bouncing the blade off every time I turn it on. Any suggestions?


Please be sure that your put correct tension on the blade. Check the blade guides and check if the blade is tracking
properly. Make sure the tires are clean. If they're well worn out, change them . You may try to install new blades too.

You absolutely need tires on both wheels. This will allow the blade to track smoothly and save premature wear of the blade, not to mention make the saw run much more quietly.

Hope this helps.

I have a Craftsman 10 inch band saw. The blade keeps coming off. I can't find my manual. How do I adjust the alignment on it?


the blade tension shaft in the rear top of the saw should also have a tracking adjustment knob that tilts the top wheel. Open the top guard and spin the top wheel by hand and adjust the tracking knob until the blade atays on. Better unplug the saw until you get this done, then you can power the saw back up and fine tune the tracking while running until it is perfect. hope this helps you.

Blade is walking off the tire.


There should be a tilt adjustment on the TOP wheel, this is what adjusts the tracking (centering of the blade) on the wheels. Watch the tension adjustment too, not enough will allow the blade to walk off
