Good afternoon, evening, morning ( what ever ) Brand new here, just signed up. Thank you in advance to all with advice for my following problem. I just puchase a Craftsman 12” bandsaw # 103.0103 (circa 1950 ish), It runs, has both upper & lower guides but the tires have been replaced and they are too thick. The blade is off center and drags against the guide, the guides have no lateral adjustments. I have looked on-line for thinner tires but can’t locate any.
Photographs to follow iif I can figure that out. Thanks again

Go to the craftsman website & do a search on your serial number. You should be able to come up w/new ones. A friend of mine gave me a 12” bs that he’d bought new, never used. But he’d let it set in his Quonset several years open & uncovered. The tires had rotted off, & it needed some other parts. I found them all on the Craftsman site. Good luck, & enjoy your saw!
