Topic tags/keywords: blade run out craftsman bearings run-out run out

I have a craftsman 113 that has .010 run out with out the motor and .025 with motor.
The bearings seem tight and smooth.
Is this common?
I have a PALS kit and I can’t get that mush adjustment out of them.
Can any one help me?

Without really knowing the saw, the larger runout, (with motor running), in indicative of the bearings not being properly seated in the end bells of the motor, and the rotor shaft is shifting into it’s normal magnetic position when you apply power. Basically, the motor does not have the rotor shaft properly stacked between the bearings to keep it exactly true when it gets turned on. If this is a belt drive saw, then the bearing stack on the blade shaft is loose.

Try adjusting the front truenions (sp?). Both are adjustable.

its not the motor that’s bad. It’s the wight of the motor on the blade shaft.
