If you mean there is vibration that moves the unit, check thaat the bllade is PROPERLY indexed on the mandrel. Sometimes they can get off center.

How do i service my p pro table saw modal clm1500tss


That belt is really tight. If the old one is ragged, cut it off. Then the answer is to warm the new belt in hot/boiling water for 30 mins to soften the rubber. The belt will become more malleable and you will be able to slip the belt over the motor and drive wheels with a flat bladed srewdriver.

The belt will tighten itself as it cools down and dries out.

Be extremely careful when lifting the belt from hot water. Avoid scalding by using tongs or other suitable implements to handle it and wear gloves when fitting it in place. Place the belt over the top pulley first and then around the motor pulley.

Good luck.

How to install;drive belt on model 34-670 saw ?


You must lower the motor down as far as possible and then tilt the saw blade so the back end of the motor where the belt is housed is exposed and accessible as possible. Then remove the cover housing at the back end of the motor. This will expose the belt. Thenyou can remove the old belt and install the new one.

I have an 80" blade


Hi,
I have the Craftsman model 113 80" saw and ran into the same type of problem here's what I did.

-Take off motor,loosen set screw on pulley and push pully as far as it will go towards motor,The pulley has a internal shoulder that will position the pulley the correct distance on the motor shaft.

- put motor back on saw (This next part is VERY important) the motor has 4 studs,3 of them have sleeves,these sleeves make it so that when they are tightened down the motor can stilll move(do not over tighten ). The forth stud is the one with the wing nut adjustment,the wing nut is how you adjust the tension.once you have your tension set you tighten the bolt on this stud and it holds the motor in place.

-Now with the motor in place ( no belt on yet) lay a flat ruler from the drive pulley to the pulley on the bottom wheel. most likely this pully will need to be adjusted in or out. These pulleys must line up perfectly with each other and over time one or the other has moved.

Take motor back off and put on belt. replace motor.

Note** you cannot eyeball the two pulleys a flat square or ruller must be used.

Since I aligned mine I have had zero problems and it runs alot smoother.

I hope this helps you out.

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

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.
