Hi,
I have the Craftsman model 113 80" saw and ran into the same type of problem here's what I did.

-Take off motor,loosen set screw on pulley and push pully as far as it will go towards motor,The pulley has a internal shoulder that will position the pulley the correct distance on the motor shaft.

- put motor back on saw (This next part is VERY important) the motor has 4 studs,3 of them have sleeves,these sleeves make it so that when they are tightened down the motor can stilll move(do not over tighten ). The forth stud is the one with the wing nut adjustment,the wing nut is how you adjust the tension.once you have your tension set you tighten the bolt on this stud and it holds the motor in place.

-Now with the motor in place ( no belt on yet) lay a flat ruler from the drive pulley to the pulley on the bottom wheel. most likely this pully will need to be adjusted in or out. These pulleys must line up perfectly with each other and over time one or the other has moved.

Take motor back off and put on belt. replace motor.

Note** you cannot eyeball the two pulleys a flat square or ruller must be used.

Since I aligned mine I have had zero problems and it runs alot smoother.

I hope this helps you out.

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 .

My band saw (craftsman 12" tilt head) stopped


Hello'
I have the exact same saw. It sounds like the key stock came out of the pulley attached to the lower wheel. I will give you a quick rundown.
-unplug saw
-you will have to lay the saw on its side so you can remove the motor and drive belt.
-there are 2 seperate pulleys , the one connected to the motor and the one connected to the bottom wheel.
-loosen motor nuts and remove motor, pay close attention when removing motor 3 of the 4 studs have sleeve like spacers.
-once motor and belt are out of the way check the pulley on the bottom wheel,my guess is that the key stock came out and the pulley spins freely.
-loosen set screw,replace keystock and tighten.
-NOTE the keystock may have came out of the motor pully instead,check.

Now this next part is real important.
-once you get it figured out and are ready to put everything back together the 2 pulleys must be perfectly lined up, use a flat ruler, using your eye will not work.line the drive pulley up with the lower pulley. ( the pulley on the motor has a shoulder on it so when it is pushed towards motor it will be set in the right spot) .

It is either the pulley on the motor or the wheel that has lost its keystock.

It should be a easy fix,Good luck

I have an old Sears Craftsman 7" Electric Handsaw model #315.27782. The blade I use for fine sawing has begun to wobble. I've taken it off, put it back on and tightened it several times. Same wobble. ...


It could be that the bearings that support the shaft that holds the blade are worn, allowing the shaft to move slightly and make the blade wobble. As the machine is an older model, I would try replacing the bearings.

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.

Blade does not track properly causes "tires" on drivewheels to come off making blade wobble.


Depending on the make and model of the bandsaw there should be tracking adjustment handwheels to get the bands to run center. If you have already done this, then inspect the drive wheel and the idler for being slightly bent, and or bearing/shaft failure.
