How do you remove the upper wheel on a craftsman 12 inch bandsaw


Check with bandsawmanuals.com if they have the manual for your band saw. You might want to try these steps. First, you need to unplug the saw and remove the band. Then remove the outside snap ring.
I am not sure but you might have to remove the self locking screw in the shaft.
Once the snap ring is removed, you should be able to remove the wheel and the outer bearing.
Then remove the back bearing from the shaft. Next, install the bearings in the reverse order.

My Craftsman Bandsaw's (Model 113.243310) tension wheel is bouncing the blade off every time I turn it on. Any suggestions?


Please be sure that your put correct tension on the blade. Check the blade guides and check if the blade is tracking
properly. Make sure the tires are clean. If they're well worn out, change them . You may try to install new blades too.

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.

Where is the tracking adjustment on the Craftsman 12inch Tilt Head Bandsaw?


The tracking adjustment is on the top wheel in the middle-spin the wheel by hand ( please make sure its unplugged first ) if the blades moves towards the front of the saw turn 1/4 turn clockwise and turn counterclockwise if its going the other way. remember that alot of things can cause your blade not to track right. I would back off all guides and rollers,top and bottom,adjust the tracking -then move guides and rollers back in. also the rule of thumb on your guides is not to touch the blade but to be as close as possible-make sure they are both even-set back 1/32 from the gulliet i.e the deepest part of the blade teeth. One other thing is the bearing in the back(back up bearing) should not touch the blade when wood is NOT going through (set it close,but not touching).

Sorry for the long answer but I've been there-get the manual and it shows it alot better.

My 12 inch band saw throws the lower tire when the power is switched on. The model number is 11324350.


Tires need replaced- may have a few other problems. try this
-unplug the saw spin the saw by hand, does track down the middle of both tires? also look at your guides and backup bearings.
I would take off blade-back off all guides and bearings -clean off any build up on tires- replace blade. now spin wheel ( always spin with the blade going down) if its tracking good go ahead and adjust guides and bearings to specs and try again. most likely the back up bearings are out of adjustment. they should not spin unless you are feeding material and it seems like the bottom one may be your problem.
But never the less it sounds like new tires are needed.

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.
