I have the same exact scroll saw. The hose number for this 16" scroll saw is 823812. On mine, the hose came off and I tried to put it back on and the plastic bellows where I'm suppose to hook it back up got pushed in and I've been trying to take off the housing but I can't seem to get it off. There's the arm bearings on the housing and I don't know how to take that off without breaking it. : > (

The tube can be replaced with the plastic tubing used for aquarium air pumps that you can find in most pet stores. Unfortunately you have to disassemble the scroll saw arm to replace it. Remove the 6 screws at the back of the arm assembly, then the 4 bolts that hold the arm to the base. This will allow you to split the arm and you will find a plastic bellows that the hose connects to.

    Hi Jim, I removed the screws to get to the bellows to hook up the plastic tube but it still won't come off. There is Arm bearings on both sides and I don't know how to remove them without breaking my scroll saw. Do you know how to remove this? Or do I have to remove this?

    The scroll saw arm is U shaped and has 3 screws at the top, 3 screws at the bottom, and if you flip the saw over there are 2 bolts holding the U to the base. Once you remove all these the arm assembly should detach from the base and you should be able to use a screw driver to gently pry the two halves of the U shape apart. There aren't any clips keeping the bearings in place so it is just a matter of slowly prying the U in numerous different places until it pops apart.

SOURCE: saw blade broke. motor won't run after changing

It would have cost more to have Sears fix the saw than I paid for it, so I got my meter out and by checking the voltage drops across all of the electrical connections in the saw , I determined that the on / off switch was defective. This switch is the same switch used to turn the lite on and off, so I took the switch out of the lite and used it in the saw. I ordered a new switch for the lite and will install it when the new one comes. Thanks for your interest and help. fletcher1

I have a craftsman jigsaw(scroll) that I got for Christmas last year. The blade comes out in the middle of my cut some time. Is there a problem with this type of jigsaw?? I have sanded the top of the...


Most of the time the cause for this is applying to much pressure on the blade as you are cutting. Remember, the blade does the cutting and you are guiding the jigsaw around the cut. This can strip the blade and wear the top of the mount. Adjust the way you cut and you should not have any problems.

Craftsman 10in Table Saw Model No. 315.218060 Dust bag


all the manual says is to insert the elbow onto the tube coming from motor and then install bag onto the elbow and for maximum performance empty the bag before it gets half full. On most table saws that I work on there is no fan or anything like that to force the dust away from unit, the best way is to run a shop vac and connect to the elbow for mazimum dust removal.

How do I adjust a craftsman bandsaw to keep it from pinching when cutting circles. I have inheirted the bandsaw with no manual


Hi Alvin,

Lower the vertical guide down until it is just above the cutting surface.

However, a standard band saw blade is primarily for straight cuts. They are too wide to make sharp turns.

If you are attempting intricate work requiring extreme angled cuts, a scroll saw is better suited for your needs.

An alternative to check on would be if any thinner scroll emulator type blades are available for your model. They don't as well on heavy jobs, but you'll get the maneuvering you need on the thinner stuff.

Best regards
Mike

My blade broke off in the lock of my craftman scrolling sabre saw and I can't get the part that is left inside out. Therefore I cannot put a new blade in. Is there a way to fix this?


Take off the clamp that holds the blade in place. Use a good degreaser (Electronics quality is best, it leaves no residue) and spray it into the blade holder. Next, blow it out with compressed air. The blade should be easily "bumped" out now. Oils & dust residue will hold the stub in, until you clean it out.
