Topic tags/keywords: table saw bearings arbor tablesaw

Developed a loud noise in my table saw a few dozen rips ago and just got to taking it apart today. I found the arbor shaft key slot nearly destroyed. I havent removed the bearings yet, but my instincts tell me those are probably shot. So ereplacement parts and searsdirect both say the parts are discontinued. Does anyone have a lead as to where i could buy new bearings and shaft for this saw?

Thanks in advance.

I get my braring at Kaman Company there address is 2020 N Rio Grande Ave, Orlando, FL 32804 but I think they if you can read the part number should be OK, you may also get a shaft that you may have to cut down. Remember bearing are sold in SEA and metric. Intercontinental Bearing Co, 5811 Dierker Dr, Houston, TX 77041 (713) 460-5300 – Houston Bearing & Supply Inc, 5311 Cornish St, Houston, TX 77007, (713) 869-7292. Hope this helps.

A shaft key and bearings are off the shelf hardware store items… unless you want to pay out the nose for a cheap no-name one that is blessed by the OEM. Give Lynne a call at Accurate Bearing and she will hook you up with the bearings. You will need a couple 6202-5/8 bearings (standard 6202-LL metric bearing with a 5/8” inner bore dimension). I’d go with sealed rather than shielded as it will keep out more crap. The key you can get at any local hardware store or the BORG for a few pennies.

FYI: I just bought some of those exact same bearings from Accurate a couple weeks ago for a drill press I’m restoring.. they were about $6 a piece IIRC. A little bit more expensive than standard 6202’s because of the goofy ID dimension, but still not too bad. They are the ones on the top of the left stack shown here:

Per the OP’s question: Bearings are the easy part. The arbor SHAFT will take a lot more than just a new key stock. May look around for a small machine shop, and have them turn a replacement shaft. Used TS are a hit & miss affair, as you may or may not get the same style of shaft…or it may be too worn out to use.

To clarify, i have a key, and new pulley. The keyway slot in the arbor shaft is severely wallowed out. So i need a new arbor shaft and new bearings.

Shaft may be salvageable… post a picture. I’ve seen some pretty tore up key slots, but none that couldn’t be made to work again. If nothing else, a machine shop could cut a new key way on the opposite side of it for pretty cheap.

Cheers,
Brad

Cut a new slot 180 degrees from the old slot?

I will post a picture when i get it torn apart tomorrow. Bandit, that is a good idea. I am guessing the machine shops around here will have a set up charge that might make it ridiculous to get one made. Thanks all.

agreed.

post a picture of the damaged keyway and let us take a look.

generally speaking, even if the keyway is jacked up, so long as a key seats properly and the shaft matches the i.d. of the pulley, you should be able to re-use it.

bearings on the craftsman line of saws are all generic and not proprietary in any respect…

I ended up getting the key slot cut on the other side. Katy machine did it for me. Nice guy and reasonable i thought. He cleaned up the burrs as well. I ourchased the bearings at Houston bearing and supply
