Question about Saws

1 Answer

Have a craftsman 10 inch table saw model #137.218250, serial #RCW3145. When we attempt to cut plywood or a 2X4 length ways, the motor dies a number of times. Most of the time the reset button will not work unless we first unplug the electric. It will cut a short distance then die. This is with a very slow feed. We used an older table saw and it worked fine so know our feed is not the problem. Do you know the answer to the situation?

Sounds like the reset button needs replaced. Also when is the last time you cleaned the motor area?? When you reset the button is the motor "hot" to the touch and if so could also be a motor problem,, try the reset first

My very old Craftsman 10" Table Saw does not power on. While rip cutting some plywood, I errored and caused the blade to bind. Before I was able to power off the saw, the motor stopped. I thought I had...


Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model number. Look at the motor and wiring section. Look at item 16. The motor overload protector. (probably your reset button) WIth saw unplugged, unwire one sid of this switch and test with an ohm meter. You should read through the switch. If it is open then that's why the saw doesn't work. Many of this type of oveload requires quite a push to reset as you're flexing a klixon disc back to make contact. If is open and you can't reset, it's available there although a bit high priced.

My craftsman 10-inch radial saw (model#113.199200) just stopped working. I had it in the driveway cutting some wood without any problems. It sat for a half hour and I went to use it again and it was running half speed then before I could even turn it off it just died. There was no popping sound or smoke, nothing! It will not start. Need help, please?

Fan and fan guard needed for 3 hp motor. Have serial number for motor on a 12 inch craftsman tablesaw.


I'm assuming your saw is a model 351.228040 or a 351.228020. Manual is here.
See page 18, Figure 7 for the Blade drive exploded diagram.
Sears doesn't appear to have a part number for the fan and fan guard.

It looks like you can replace the entire motor and key for $217.55 (as of 6/13/2010) which isn't too bad for a 3 HP motor. Part number is 15094.00 and clicking it will link you to their parts site.

If this answer was useful, please give it a thumbs up. Thanks!

Problem with 10" craftsman table saw


Your adjustment should be done on the rip fence which will align it to the blade for strait non binding cuts.

Weak perfomance,saw about stalls with 1/4" plywood


Most of the little 10" motorized saws are way underpowered. Take it back to Sears and get your money back. Go somewhere where they'll let you try it out first. Get a Ryobi from Home Depot. I've had one for years and it will rip a 2x4 all day long.

Cut off question


Here a few examples: * 5 inch trim saws, usually with a fine-toothed blade and often with the blade located on the left side of the motor, for easy viewing of the blade path. These are available in 120V, AC models, and rechargeable battery models in various DC voltages. * 6 1/2 inch saws, as shown in the illustration above, used for cutting to length nominal lumber for construction, as well as ripping lumber, and cutting plywood or composite material. * 7 1/4 inch saws, often call skillsaws, from the name of a major circular saw manufacturer, Skill. These are the backbone of the construction industry, used for cutting lumber up to 2 1/4 inch thick. They are used for cutting framing lumber to length, and ripping lumber. They also have a number of optional blades which can be used for cutting composite materials, concrete, ferrous and nonferrous metal sheeting, pipe, tubing, and even cold-rolled steel bar stock. * 8 and 10 inch saws, used for cutting to length larger lumber or timbers, up to 4 inches thick. These are heavier, more cumbersome tools used mostly in industrial work. * Worm-drive saws have a gearbox with a worm-geardrive, and are found in 7 1/4 inch models which are most commonly used for ripping lumber or cutting plywood decking or sheathing. They typically have the blade on the left side of the machine, to make watching the blade path easier when cutting parallel to the edge of a wide sheet of plywood.
