Somebody please help. I have recently bought a Craftsman table saw, manufactured in 1957 by King Seeley. It is a model 103.24440 ten-inch saw. I have it ready to run save for one thing—no arbor pulley. If anyone out there has one, could you please measure both the motor pulley and the arbor pulley for me. I really want to get this thing in service!

If the motor is a 3450 it’ll often be 3 at the motor and 2 1/2 at the spindle If it’s a 1725 go buy a motor ;-) 1 1/2HP/ 3450 120/220 please ;-)

-- What day is it ? No matter. Ummmm What month is it ? No moron. I paid for a 2 x 6. That means Two inches by six inches. I want the rest of my wood.

My brother had great difficulty in aligning his Craftsman. He would get it dead on and it would slip as he tightened the trunnion bolts. I saw the PALS kit at a Woodworking show that seems like a good idea, but don’t know anyone that has actually tried it. Also, don’t know if it would fit a Craftsman of that vintage.

Do not want to argue, but the manual states that a 3450 rpm motor should be used to drive the arbor at
3450 rpm, that means both pulleys should be the same diameter. The manual also states that the arbor has
a two belt pulley, so the motor should also-not absolutely necessarily-have a two belt pulley. Just my opinion,
and I have been known to be wrong before.

Gus, nobody’s arguing. You are right—it’s in the manual. Thanks a bunch! I have the motor pulley and it is a double sheave pulley, so there it is. The arbor was actually broken when I bought the saw. I machined a new arbor, but had no pulley. I should be able to have it all put together soon.
Thanks again,
Dave
