Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw

I recently bought a 1950s craftsman table saw, model number 103.24440 for $60! The arbor shaft is broken, but I am a machinist and plant maintenance mechanic, so making this machine work is not a huge undertaking. The pulley on the arbor shaft is missing. If anyone out there has this saw, could you please measure the outside diameters of both the motor pulley and arbor pulley? I want to get the ratio correct. Vintage is not hugely helpful in answering this question (but this question led me there—way cool site, but not the easiest to search/navigate). I can have this saw up in just a couple of days with just a little bit of info. Any help on this topic would be hugely appreciated.

With a quick search, found a 1957 catalog . Tried to find more info but no to avail. You might want to contact members from the other forum sites that have the same saw as yours.

Yes, I had been to and found the manual for my saw. It has part numbers for the pulleys in question, but no sizes. I will try their forum, but was hoping to get some help here as I had posted earlier (before I bought it) and had responses from others who had the saw. Waiting and seeing.

I measured my motor pulley. ID is 1 3/8, OD is 2 1/4. Per the owners manual, the arbor and motor are the same part number, 46450, so I did not reach in and measure the arbor, but 1 motor revolution equals a blade revolution.

right, usually with a 3450 RPM motor, the motor and arbor pulley are the same size.
Unless the motor is 1725, then the motor pulley is twice the size.

Have your say...
