Back off all guides and wheels from blade. Tighten idel wheel to tension blade. Turn by hand a few time to check that blade is tension correctly. Adjust top and bottom guides to just touch-off the side and back of blade.

Hi,my bandsaw will not cut a straight line with or without the fence. the blade just wants to go to the left (as i look at it). i've even tried freehand but the bandsaw just doesn't want to know. it cuts...


Dave, this could be caused by a couple of things.

One, the blade tension may be too low.

Two, and in conjunction with #1, the blade guide on the left side of the blade may need to be brought closer to the blade ( but without actually touching).

Three, is thee any blade damage that could be pulling the blade to the left? Try another blade and see what results you get.

If you need help determining if one or more of these issues are the problem you're experiencing, or if you need help making the adjustments, you're welcome to send photos of your machine and I can walk you through it.

Need a manual for a sears/craftsman model #103.24300 bandsaw


Any particular reason? If general settings problem, please follow this advice:

Brand of bandsaw is of no importance, problem is... I assume that problem is with regulation of the blade motion. Please follow these instructions, I posted them previously for another member, they apply to any bandsaw in existence, regardless of brand, manufacture, age or look...

I love bandsaws, they are one of best and most universal woodworking machines, used as well in food and metal industries.

Now, what you should know about bandsaw that it have several points of regulations and all of them must be adjusted correctly. Basic "anatomy" of bandsaw is that it have body, in it there is housed driving wheel (bottom) and tension wheel (top), both of these are protected by rubber "tyre" usually crowned, that allow for better self adjustment and protect teeth on the band.

Switch machine off and remove power plug from the socket.

Start with tension, open covers, retract top (above the table) and bottom (below the table) guides so blade is not touching the rear bearing or side slides.

1. rotate top wheel and see where blade is wandering, regulate tension and tilt on the wheel till band position itself on the centre of the top wheel, is rotating freely without wandering, and cuttin edge is off the wheel or rubber and do not touch the wheel or raiser.
2. cut strip of paper and slide top guide towards the blade till bearing touch blade through the paper (paper thickness is about correct distance of bearing to the blade), allowing paper to be slided out without tension. lock bearing guide in.
3. insert paper on internal side of the blade and slide internal slide guide block till you can only pull the paper out, lock the slider.
4. repeat previous (3) operation on external guide block and after you slide paper out, lock it in position as well.
5. manually rotate the tension wheel, should operate freely, without wandering, without touching bearing or side slides.
6. repeat step 2 to 5 on the bottom guide
7. close the covers
8. adjust hight of the top guide suitable to cut , allowing about 2 finger breaths above the cut piece.
9. connect power, switch on the bandsaw and switch off, after it stop, check for tension, switch on and make test cut.

This general rule applies to all bandsaw, regardless of brand, make, vintage. Do remember that this is not a toy, it will cut through, wood, metal and your fingers...

Do remember, that these operations must be performed every time when you change the blade, do not forget to use bit of silicone or teflon spray if you cut very sappy or green wood, do not press and force, allow blade to slide and cut, use protection screen and googles, you have only two eyes and there are no spares...

If you have problem with your bandsaw, not related to adjustments, please do not hesitate to ask further questions, let us know how you get along with this info.

I jsut bought a used Delta 28-682 18" bandsaw. I am shocked by the poor quality of the blade guides. They are gapped so far apart that they hardly touch the blade unless it is twisted at a 45 degree...


It sounds as though the friction pads that go on the guides are missing. If you cannot buy a new set, try glueing some teflon blocks of the desired thickness to the guides.

How do I adjust a craftsman bandsaw to keep it from pinching when cutting circles. I have inheirted the bandsaw with no manual


Hi Alvin,

Lower the vertical guide down until it is just above the cutting surface.

However, a standard band saw blade is primarily for straight cuts. They are too wide to make sharp turns.

If you are attempting intricate work requiring extreme angled cuts, a scroll saw is better suited for your needs.

An alternative to check on would be if any thinner scroll emulator type blades are available for your model. They don't as well on heavy jobs, but you'll get the maneuvering you need on the thinner stuff.

Best regards
Mike

Is blade being guided? Use a straight edge to guide the material being cut.

Band saw blade wanders.


cut freehand. A bandsaw blade will always run off to one side or the other, even using a fence.

The rip fence is intended for re-sawing only, and very thin strips
