At the arbor end it should be a curved 3/16" key. At the motor it will be a square 3/16" key. I would guess these should be available at most hardware stores, but I would have both types & most other parts too. I sell craftsman table saw parts, you can contact me via email jimatcavanaungh@cs.com

How do I change the blade on model #17224 saber saw?


Are you talking about a reciprocating saw? What brand? If this is what you're referring to, then there is usually an Allen style set screw at the base of the blade. Loosen the set screw with an Allen wrench, and replace the blade. Retighten the set screw and cut away.

Why does a sears table saw pulley keep throwing it's woodruf key ?


Best guess I can make is that the set screws are not tight enough.
Try tightening them more and see if that keeps the key in place.

Second, make sure that the key is the right size for the keyway.

Shouldn't happen.

Loose pulley arbor


I had a similar problem and after removing the suspect pulley I discovered that the threads for the set screw were not tapped all the way through. The set screw would tighten but not go far enough to lock on the key. With the pulley off the arbor I forced the set screw until it threaded well into the key way. I had to use quite a bit of force to get it to go but it finally pushed through the last portion that was unthreaded. Then I reinstalled it on the arbor with the key and tightened it. It has been months now of steady use without any movement.

I was recently given and older Craftsman 10" table sawa. It worked great for cuttin some 2x4 and now all of a sudden it will only cut part way7 and than stops, and it smokes--Help!!


The problem could be one of the following:
1) dull blade, in which case replace with a carbide-toothed blade
2) underpowered or old/faulty electric motor
3) faulty/worn belt, in which case replace with new belt
4) The pulley on either the motor or the saw arbor (where the pulley attaches underneath the saw near blade) could be loose. Tighten down set screw.
5) The saw fence isn't set straight causing the wood to jam as you push it into the blade. Check this with a framing square and readjust so it is at a 90-degree angle to the front of the saw table.

My Craftsman Table Saw doesn't go to 0 degrees- it stops @ 3-5 degrees


Most likely it is the trunnion under the saw. On the right hand side the wheel that changes the angle of the blade should fit into the cast iron part under the saw where the blade is. You'll have to tip the saw onto its back or side and check this connection as it probably needs some grease. If that's not it then oil the gears on the trunnion that control the saw angle.

Motor makes horrible noise


It could be the bearings in the motor are bad. When you turn the saw on does the motor pulley turn. If not the motor shaft could be turning inside the pulley. Make sure the pulley is not loose on the motor shaft. If the motor just hums without spinning it has an internal within the motor itself

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

The pulley attached to the arbor for the belt on my 15 year old table saw keeps flying off. It is the type with a metal spline that goes into a slot in the drive shaft and two hex screws to hold it tight....


Sound like a nasty problem. Something has to be wrong, maybe the keyway is cammed out on the arbor shaft?? Did you try some lock tite, on the set screws, then I am guessing you got the set screws tight for sure? I know thats not easy. I deal in table saw parts on ebay as "Hokienpokie" if you need to try a different arbor assembly I should be able to get you one with your saw model #, Jim
