Hello Everyone -
Yesterday I was given – FREE – a Craftsman 10” Contractor, belt drive, table saw #113.298762.
The gent who gave it to me says it works, however, the arbor bearing went out on it. So he bought a new arbor and bearing (he gave me the invoice to show it) but said that when he used the saw it kept slipping off on him. He said he knew he had to of put it back together wrong and finally gave up on it and bought a
So now I have questions.
The last time he took it apart he just left it in pieces. All the parts are there (including a new belt) so all I need to do is reattach the motor and the two side extensions, and fix the arbor problems. The elevation and tilt mechanisms are still working well.
He did cut a little portal next to the end of the arbor to make it easier to work on and the arbor and bearing are in place.
I was up till 12:30AM fiddling with it. The arbor pulley will not budge with the screw removed. I wanted to see if the bearing would move so I pulled it towards the pulley. I did move, but will not go back towards the housing. I sprayed the pulley with a healthy dose of PB Blaster Oil before I called it quits for the night. I’ll check today to see if I can get the pulley off. I woke up this AM remembering that either my father, or father-n-law, has a small pulley puller that might work.
Any Ideas on how to remove the pulley without damaging it or the other parts?
Also, the rip fence did not come with it. I can get an original rip fence for it, but if I wanted to go with a different one/brand how do I know what would work with it?
I would love to get a new rip fence, but money won’t allow it right now so I will either have to buy an original from someone or a used, fancier one. I just want to make sure that what I buy will work. I have contacted the guy who gave it to me to see if he still has the original rip fence and would be willing to part with it. I’m hoping it was just an oversight and he forgot to throw it in with the rest of the parts.
Also, I’ve been told that there is an upgrade pulley set. Anyone know the part numbers or where to go to buy them?
One last thing. The yellow ‘lock’ button on the power switch is missing. Will this thing work if it’s missing?
Thanks for the help.
