Well today was a good day to spend on tuning up my 30+ year old 113 series Craftsman Band Saw. I took everything apart like the upper and lower bearing holders. Lubed everything and put on Olson’s Cool Blocks and an Olson blade also. I’ve only made a few cuts, but so far WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! I know it’s not a JET or POWERMATIC or any other “high dollar” named brand, but for a 30+ $90 used saw it works for me. Hopefully with the adjustments I’ve made it will last alot longer.

Once I figure out how to get the pictures off my iphone I’ll get them on.
