The bearing would be a standard bearing. There's plenty of engineering in bearings and consumer tool manufacturers don't waste their time designing application-specific bearings. It helps a lot if you can read the brand and number on the old bearing. It will also help if you can precisely measure the bearing. There are several bearing distributors on-line that can find the exact same thing or cross- reference for you.

Need to replace outboard ball bear on rotor assembly.


Don't heat it! Most tools don't use heat applied bearings and the small shaft will warp if you heat it. Use an arbor press if you have to.

My circular saw is not working


Check brushes...
Dewalt Craftsman 2 Pack Carbon Brush Holder for Saws 147097 09 2pk
or sometimes the switch fails...
Craftsman 7621301 Circular Saw Switch
if you luck out, it may just be a broken wire, right at the switch, or right where it enters the saw? Pulling the, or directly on the cord vs. just the plug puts a lot of strain on the wires.
But if it is one of the parts above, very easy repair.

How to gear spindle from housing


The unit is retained by two or three screws surrounding a retaining ring on the saw blade side, and I believe there are some screws holding the gear housing on the motor side that need to be removed as well. I just replaced the bearing on mine a week ago, and even though the situation is obvious once you figure it out I was not smart enough to do so, and wasted an hour trying to figure out how to remove that retaining ring over the bearing. Good luck

Craftsman circular saw. The blade wobbles on the shaft even though tightened down so the blade does not spin straight and steady. Without the blade I can wobble the shaft around with my fingers. Feels...


Depending on your budget, I suggest replacing the item. It sounds like your bearings are bad, which means tearing apart the case and replacing them (which don't cost much). There are two bearing encasements so you would need to replace both. If you're up for the challenge, give it a try! The bearings can typically be found on the manufacturers website.

How to replace ball bearing in a miter saw.


depends on which one, usually you would need a bearing puller or splitter, but on some you have to crush the outer race and then use a puller to get the inner race off, that would be the fan end bearing. Let me know if you need more help

Manual for #103.0205 circ. saw


Earlier comment 103.0205 Table Saws does not need lubrication is simply wrong.

The103.0202, 103.0203, 103.0305 Craftsman Companion Table Saws main Arbor axle DOES have to lubricated or else the axle bearing will quickly loosen side-to-side or vertically and fail to provide accurate saw cuts.

FWIW, Sears no longer sells Arbor Axle replacement parts... The Table Saw Arbor axle and Bearing Housing cannot use sealed bearings unless the saw case is re-milled and extensively modified. There are 2 Oil Hole Plugs (part# 475-32) that need to be opened and oil applied so the Arbor axle shaft does not get scored or worn.

I use 30wt motor oil to relube the Arbor Axle Shaft depending on amount of use, temperature, and axle rotation stiffness.

Remember, the higher the RPM speed of the table saw motor and/or the longer the use, the more frequently you may need to relube the Arbor Axle Bearing!

I went to Searspartsdirect.com and typed in your model number leaving the last 0 off and came up with a schematic, I don't know if this is actually your saw so you might want to take a look and hopefully you can find the part you need. If I have helped you in anyway please rate my information accordingly and Thank you

Boken shaft of old Craftsman skill saw


I have repaired many craftsman circular saws over the years and find that they share some parts with other brands. When sears drops a model number you must try to discover who made it for them. You did not list a model number, however when I need to identify a saw w/o the number I look at old part breakdowns and look on ebay for similar looking saws. Try and identify which manufacture made it for sears. Many were made by skill over the years so I start there. Once I find a good match, I check for available new parts. If not available, I check pawn shops and small tool repair shops for used parts, even burned out armature then have it rewound at www.eurton.com If you value your old saw take the extra time to look around, if not buy a good used saw at a pawn shop. I prefer Makita or Milwaukee good used about 40-70$; good used craftsman 20-30$, take a good look at the armature commutator and check that the arbor bearing is tight. Good Luck and email if you have questions.
