SOURCE: I broke the lower blade guide

All I could find out is that your skil bandsaw is made by the Bosch Bench tool co in Mount Prospect, Il. The owners manual from skil shows the part you need as #6 lower blade guide, and Lowes does handle this line of Skil. I would suggest contacying Lowes or the store you bought this from and getting the consumer help phone number from them. They have to have this part available as I am seeing a lot of these units refurbished, so someone has the parts to them. Hope this helps and good luck. Marvin

SOURCE: I need replacement blade guide wheel bearings

Remove the bearings and take them to a bearing supply house--they should be able to match them perfectly. Good luck!

My Craftsman Table Saw doesn't go to 0 degrees- it stops @ 3-5 degrees

Most likely it is the trunnion under the saw. On the right hand side the wheel that changes the angle of the blade should fit into the cast iron part under the saw where the blade is. You'll have to tip the saw onto its back or side and check this connection as it probably needs some grease. If that's not it then oil the gears on the trunnion that control the saw angle.

Blade out of alignment with miter grooves in casting top. how can I realign?

Do an online search for "table saw tune up" and sort through the articles to find one that gives detailed instructions on how to check for blade runout and how to test blade alignment with the table top. Here's one that covers the basics quickly and concisely, but there are many to choose from. Compare them with information from your powermtic user's guide.
It's a laborious process that will take a day or two and you need to loosen the bolts that fasten the saw trunnions/ mechanism to the cast top, and physically shift the alignment of the saw arbor relative to the mitre slots, then recheck it for alignment, etc. until you get it right. Sometimes you can loosen several corners and leave one kind of tight to shift the saw in the direction you want to move. Download the online manual from powermatic here by choosing your model and you'll have onhand a detailed parts diagram to guide you. If you're not up to a gruelling process, and don't have the appropriate tools, I recommend you re-check your blade to ensure it's not at fault and see if you can't live with it as is.
Otherwise, good luck and be patient. It's worth it to have it right, but wood is only wood, and at some point you have to just do the woodworking.

Lost ability to raise the blade for operation.

Most often this is caused by the handle or wheel that is used to raise/lower the blade coming loose on the shaft that operates the worm gear in the trunnion. There is frequently an allen set screw that locks this wheel onto the shaft and this set screw comes loose or is lost. If loose, simply tighten it.
Otherwise, it may be time for some routine maintenance. Unplug the saw, clean all sawdust and debris from under the saw using compressed air if possible, and then lubricate the worm gear/gear box and trunnion ways. Some people prefer silicone for this, some use WD40. I prefer normal motor oil. In any event you will need a long oil spout to direct the lubricant into the worm gear and gears, then/while raising and lowering the saw. Also lubricate the angle adjustment gears.
If you keep your saw properly lubricated, it will function easily and be a joy to adjust. Otherwise, it can become a struggle or just impossible.
Good luck.
