SOURCE: 14'' Sears craftsman bandsaw blade slips off, not much power

It sounds to me like the blade has stretched which the do in changing temperatures.
Try replacing the blade before you give up altogether. i was having the same problem with a Ryobi Blade would come off whenever i tried to cut a pice of 3 ply. I eventually replaced the blade and all ny troubles evaporated.

SOURCE: adjust angle of band saw blade to align with fence

Typically the fence is attached to the table and the table can be angled to create a bevel.

Using a square, align the table so it's square to the blade. Assuming your fence is square to the table vertically, you're good.

With most bandsaws I have worked with, there is a positive stop (typically just a bolt - the head acts as the stop) underneath the table so when you tilt the table, you can return it to flat without having to re-square everything up every time. Once you've got things square, make sure to adjust the positive stop too.

Be aware you may still have to compensate for drift with your fence, though.

If this answer was useful, please vote. Thanks!

SOURCE: blade falls off when started. cant seem to tighten

could be quite a few things, first try another blade and try and notice which pulley it rools off of first. If the back pulley look for a loose axle. If the front also look for a loose axle, bent housing ( from hitting work) or the shaft that tightens the blade might have a bent tang. If the front seems to be a problem you can loosen the axle and shim the backside, Also look at the condition of the tires for excess wear.

Blade is slightly closer to fence in back causing the material to kick back.


Hi Ken,
Sounds like you need to to adjust your fence.I use the blade from a combination square.Place the steel blade next to the saw blade(between the carbide teeth).Next loosen the fence lock,loosen the two hex bolts on the rear pinion assembly so that the fence can move side to side.Move the fence up to the combo blade and adjust the fence and lock the fence lock.Check for blade and fence for true.Tighten the hex bolts at the rear pinion bearing assembly. Thank You for choosing FixYa.com.

I have a crftsman table saw mdl # 137228210 I purchased the saw used. I need a rip fence . the guides are allready there. any help would be appreciated


There's an exploded parts drawing and parts list at the link below. This may be useful to see what the fence is supposed to look like. It's not listed as an assembly, just a surprisingly long list of parts that would cost a fortune - if they were all available. Maybe you can find one on ebay. Barring that, you can always just clamp a board to the table to rip with - the hard part is getting the makeshift fence to be parallel to the blade. To do that you can use an adjustable square and measure from a miter slot in the table to get a quick and straight setup. Good luck.

The lock lever adjustment is loose and will not work.


On mine, the lever operates a long rod that runs through the fence. On the fence rear, there is an adjustment screw that sets the clamp tension. If you need any parts, go to: Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. Hope this helps!

Problem with 10" craftsman table saw


Your adjustment should be done on the rip fence which will align it to the blade for strait non binding cuts.

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 purchased a dewalt 718, 12 inch sliding double bevel saw , private sale, saw was only used a couple of times and is in new condition .Checked cutting bevels and found that the left 45 degree does...


The fence may be getting in the way of the arm when you adjust the trunion assembly fully to one side or the other for bevel cutting. Adjusting the fence all the way out away from the trunion assy. should allow full 45deg adjustment. If this is not the case, it could be--even though its only slightly used--that there is sawdust built up enough in the housing to keep the arm from fully adjusting.

While the latch COULD indeed be faulty, it generally should always be tightened/locked so that the trunion assy. is fimly "locked" before cutting as this is designed to keep the saw from shifting mid cut, causing binding, uneven cuts, broken blades, seized bearings, etc.

Blade isn't cutting well. It smokes and the wood rides up as it is cutting. The saw is 14 yrs old but blade has only been used a few times. I think it needs alignment. Can I do that myself?


You should be able to adjust the fence but every model is different so I probably cannot tell you exactly how. My Biesemeyer fence has 2 set screws on front guide of the fence for parallel adjustment to the blade (this fence is a single piece fence). I had a Sears contractor saw that had 2 bolts on the top of the fence that needed to be loosened, the fence moved parallel, and the bolts tightened again (the Sears fence was a bolt together fence). Whatever fence you have I would think the adjustment would be on the front part of the fence. I would remove the fence (the fence only, not the guides) from your table saw and take a close look at it for any adjustment screws (the Biesemeyer set screws are somewhat hidden) . If the fence bolts together you will probably need to loosen the bolts to do the alignment. There is a quick check you can make to verify the problem is the fence not being parallel to the blade because your problem could also be caused by a bent saw blade arbor (the saw blade would wobble as it turns)

ø Lock your fence down and measure from the front of the blade to the fence and from the back of the blade to the fence. These measurements should be within 1/32” (ideally is should be zero).
ø If the fence passes the test above, you can see if your saw blade shaft is bent by sliding the fence very near the blade, locking the fence down, and rotation the blade by hand (unplug the saw first). If the blade rubs on the fence as it rotates then you could have a bent arbor, a bad arbor bearing, or a bent blade.

The fence in not sitting square to the table. If you place a square against the fence and the table there is a gap of about 2 mm and I don't how to fix it.


Does your saw have an adjustable/extension table. If so look on the backside where the other gear is located on a DeWalt there are 2 bolts holding this in place, what I do is loosen them up and with the square move the fence till it squares up and then snug the bolts, move the fence away and bring it back again to see if it repeats to square, if so tighten up, if not try again, if you don't have this gear give me the brand and model number and I will look into it further

Fence gets a slight bow in it when tightened


look at the far end of the fence for a nut that you can loosen slightly when in the unclamped position. It sounds as if you are clamping it so tight that you are bowing the fence
