The wheels have to be true at 180 degrees facing each other. Use a metal rafter square if needed to align the trueness of these wheels. If one is angled out ward the blade does come off the wheel

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.

Band saw blade keeps coming off


Set up your band saw properly. There are several reason why band saw blade keeps on coming off on the wheels: loose/wear tire, improper guide adjustment, incorrect tension, over feeding wood stock or the problem could be on the blade itself. Try to change your blade, I got my band saw blades on sawblade.com . I suggest you watch band saw tune up tutorial videos on youtube. Hope that helps.

Check this blog first. Are you installing a new blade? If the blade is running backwards, you just have to reverse it, turn inside out. Try watching the Alex Snodgrass' Youtube video Band Saw Tune Up .

Why doesnt the wheels on my band saw turn when I turn the saw on?I can't even turn them when the saw is off.


Most likely the blade has come out of position and jammed. One place to check is at the guides just above and below the table.
To be sure the guides are correct, Google on "adjust band saw" to find out how to adjust them.

I have a Craftsman 10 inch band saw. The blade keeps coming off. I can't find my manual. How do I adjust the alignment on it?


the blade tension shaft in the rear top of the saw should also have a tracking adjustment knob that tilts the top wheel. Open the top guard and spin the top wheel by hand and adjust the tracking knob until the blade atays on. Better unplug the saw until you get this done, then you can power the saw back up and fine tune the tracking while running until it is perfect. hope this helps you.
