Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw

1 Answer

I have a 10'' table saw

I have a 10'' craftsman table saw. I noticed a very slight movement in the blade shaft from left to right. The saw seems to run smooth and cuts very straight but I do not know if this is normal and if not how do I tighten it up. JOHN

If it cuts straight it's fine. It's likely just some play in the bearings. I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts to cut not so straight...

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Have a Craftsman 10" Model 113.241691 table saw


I have the same table saw. Mine has done that for the past 25 years and I've always considered that it's just the flexible shaft coming up to speed. It's never given me any problems so haven't looked into any further.

I just bought this table saw and when i tilt the blade to 45 deg. the blade rubs on the blade insert. also when i put it together it didnt come with a riving knife and hardware.


I ran into that kind of problem with my Craftsman 10 table saw. I (an usual) over analyzed the problem and looked at moving the entire motor assembly from left to right slightly. In the end, I found that that the blade stablizer plates I used on the left and right of the blade, moved the blade that little bit needed to make the blade tips make contact. I removed the two stablizer plates, reinstalled the blade with the normal to flat washers and gave it a try. The blade now cleared the insert when pushed all the way to 45 degrees.

You might want to look to make sure there are no extra washers/spacers on the arbor that might move the blade slightly left or right from its normal position.

I'm missing a ''tilt'' set screw on my Craftsman 10 inch table saw


I couldn't find that model Sears saw to confirm, but if yours is like mine (113.298720), then the handle on the right causes the saw trunion to swivel left and right. And there is a locking hex-head bolt on the front of the saw up close to the underside of the table. This bolt locks the trunion in place keeping it from swivelling.
Take a look at the following diagram http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/P0908018-00004.png part 22 is the shaft that tilts the blade Part 30 is the bolt that locks it in place part 29 is the handle part 28 is the spring that holds the handle on the locking bolt

I have an old craftsman table saw. i believe the "brake" or gears a shot. the saw runs very loud and shakes. now no matter how much i tighten the blade the nut loosens after one cut.


With the saw unplugged and the blade tightened, using your fingers try to wiggle the blade side to side and lift it up and down. Other than a little flexing of the blade, there should be no movement. If you have much movement you have a problem and the saw is dangerous. If this is a belt-driven saw, then you may be able to replace the bearings on the arbor (the shaft the saw mounts to) or you may have to replace the whole arbor. If this is a direct-drive saw (the saw mounts directly on the motor shaft) then the bearings that have failed are in the motor and you are less likely to be able find and install replacement bearings. If you find the model number of your saw, you might be able to find drawings and replacement parts on this site:

Horid noise! Is it the bearings?


It sounds like a bearing alright, I'm pretty sure you can replace the bearing, but you will have to slip the belt off the pulley and remove the trunion, (the part that raises and lowers the saw blade), put this on you work bench and remove the blade shaft this should allow you to pull the bearing or pound it out of the bearing retainer. I would do this ASAP before you ruin the shaft.

How to change blade on 10" Craftsman table saw?


you need to grab the blade with something.maybe some pliers(if you are not going to refurbish blade) and loosen the nut in the center of the blade. i think it is a left hand thread(cw to loosen) because of the rotation of the blade. if the nut is on the left when looking from the front it is probably left handed. make sure it's unplugged and wear leather gloves so you don't get cut. install in reverse...
