There should be an adjustment knob on the back that changes the angle of the top wheel and this will center the blade so it stays on. I do this by jogging the saw on and off while I adjust it. hope this helps you

My Clark bandsaw blade slips off as soon as its power up. Iv tried the tension and adjusting guides, also changing the blades with no success.


Check the bearings on the pulleys. The pulley is not in line with the shaft and therefor the angle causes the blade to move to the acute side and fall off.

I have a clarke 12ins bandsaw i do not know if the blade should be fitted over the drivebelt or where it is fitted now. along side running on the metal wheel can you help .thanks


The blade must be running on the band wheel. Drive belt is only responsible for rotation of the wheel.
Try checking some videos on youtube.I believe you can find some videos that can help you out.

Bandsaw really bounces around


Often a blade will "bounce" or "jump" when passing through the saws guides. This will cause problems by overloading the blade gullet, or causing expensive damage to your head feed system. The following is a list of the most common causes for a "bouncing blade".

  1. Straightness of the blade.
  2. Straightness of the weld.
  3. Blade tension is set too low.
  4. Wheels are out of round.
  5. Blade guides are damaged.
  6. Blade is bent.
  7. Wheel Bearings are bad.
Hope this helps. I learned that from www.sawblade.com

Tire comes off top wheel almost all the time. Tire comes off bottem wheel sometimes. Don't know how to set up this saw.


My jet bandsaw did same thing only fix was new tires .Tires are supposed to be tite on wheel .get wood dowels between tire and wheel and roll new tire onto wheel. If desperate could glue on with weather strip adhesive.put bandsaw blade on both tires spin wheels with power off till blade is running in center of wheel by adjusting top wheel in or out. When done adjust blade guides to blade and bearings to back of blade .This is top and bottom of cutting area

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 have a 12" Sears - Craftsman - Band Saw and the blade keeps coming off. How do I install a new blade and keep it on?


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.

Saw blade jumpes off at motor pulley on horizontal band saw


It is probably not tracking. you need to back off the guides, get the blade to track in the center of the tire by hand. Then torque it up a bit till it twangs, Then pull the guides up the blade and just touch it, don't push it at all, the bearings too. This should track and not jump off. If it does, then one of your wheels is out of whack, check them with a straight edge with the blade set. See if they are in line. One of the bearings could be bad. Check it out.

Top wheel part broke off


I suspect the part you need is 150086 "Upper Wheel Shaft". You can confirm this by checking the exploded diagram for your bandsaw which can be downloaded at http://content.wmhtoolgroup.com/manuals/708115K_man.pdf.

See page 25 for exploded diagram showing wheel shafts, bearings, etc..

It might be worth checking with JET about warranty since I believe that band saw has a 5 year warranty. You can check here for a service center near you.
