Topic tags/keywords: replacement parts sears craftsman band saw

I recently broke the drive belt on my sears craftsman belt/disc sander. The part on the Sears site is $13 something. They want almost $8.00 to ship it. They won’t ship to a store and they don’t carry replacement parts at the stores. You want the part, you pay the shipping. I think this is a rip off.

Has anyone found a reliable place to get replacement parts at a fair price?

Just curious.

Pepster, it is what it is…it’s their ball park, we just play in it. A lot of the parts I use in my little repair business cost more to ship than they do to buy. Of course, being as I sometimes order multiple parts, I can mitigate the shipping cost a little. If I get a big job(expensive tool) I scour CL for a ratty one, and buy it for parts.

I just had the same issue on my delta. I got it from www.ereplacementparts.com, but I doubt they will be a whole lot cheaper. I think I paid $9 for the belt anfd $9 to ship.

Welcome the the wonderful world of Crapsman. How do ya spell “GOTCHA”? I have an indrustrial supply house that can supply most of my needs. Bearings, belts, etc. I’m lucky in that one of the guys is a member of our WW’ing club.
I avoid Sears at all times. Ya think that they care? NAHHHHH!

Take your old belt off, take it to an auto parts store like AutoZone or Riley Auto Parts, etc. and pick up a fan belt the same size…...works good, and half the price, and no shipping charges…..simple…

@ Bill White: I think we are on the same page about Sears…..I hate their junky crap that they sell. Quality is out the door with them anymore…...

Uh oh….I think I just read the post wrong. Are you talking about the wide sanding belt ?
