Question about Craftsman 12 x 80" Band Saw Blade 6 tpi Regular Tooth

1 Answer

My husband has about a 50 year old Craftsman Band Saw, Model # 103.24280 and needs new tires for it. The Wheel number on one is T 41211-103 and on the other is B 41213-103. I called the Sears Parts Dept., and they sent him a couple of Tires/Belts, which were too small. They assured me that they were the right ones, and on the paper they sent with them it said Item # 41815 Belt Flat (Tire) KK-102. Of course, it was not the right one. Is there anywhere out there to still get these tires/belts? It uses 80" Blades. Thanks Judy

Hi Judy,
I am not a expert on this exact saw but I may be able to help. The good thing is that there is a ton of info. and help with older saws.
You have a 12" saw, this means that the wheels are 12" in diameter. the tires they sent you may have been the right ones ( they are smaller than the wheel and can be a real pain to put on ) the reason for them being smaller is so when the tires are on the wheels they don't slip.

Heres some places you can check.

- carter products ( www.carterproducts .com)

Look at these 2 sites to get you started, I would also look at "how to install a bandsaw tire" (just type that in ) this will give you a video on how to install a tire. Its alot easier to see it than having someone try and tell you.

You will need to know your width of tire i.e. 3/4"or1"

The saw you have is a Craftsman Model 103, 12" saw (they will ask you this also.

I really hope this helps in some way, The saw you have is a GREAT, I have a Model 113 and use it all the time.

If you have time to leave a comment I would be thankful.

Where can I purchase a replacement tire for a Craftsman 7 1/2 inch band saw ? It is for the lower drive wheel and is app. 10 inches in diameter. It is rubber.

I love using both rubber and urethane tires. My old 14" band saw runs for 15 years with rubber tires on it; I changed it when it started cracking with urethane tires that I got from

Tire comes off of wheel

This could be a big wild guess on how the tire comes off on the wheel. But I'll try to help you this thing. I don't know if your bandsaw has adjustment bolt above the upper wheel and below the lower wheel, but in case there is , use these bolts to center the band saw. Well, this could also be blade tension adjustment. Tires should be a very tight fit and a struggle to get on.
Wait, was tired glued on? If not, reglue.
Is that an old tire? If yes, tire must be well worn out and time to invest new ones.
I recommend you to use this time urethane tires rather than rubber tires.
Rubber tires works fine but urethane tires last longer and doesn't need gluing. When you purchase a new tire, make sure that it is a couple of inches smaller than the wheel to stretch the tire. It is a good advice to slightly tilt the top of the drive wheels towards you. I've been purchasing urethane tire with Got one from them and still up running. Piece of advise also,Before installing the new tires, you double-check the surfaces of the pulleys to make sure the surfaces are clean and true.

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.
