Default Craftsman Contractor Table Saw Repair Question

I have a Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw, model #113.298142. The arbor area has recently become noisy when the saw runs. There is no blade wobble. Parts are available from Sears. I'm not sure which part(s) to replace. Would it just be the arbor bearing? Should I replace the arbor too? What about the retaining rings?

most likely...
see a bearing supply house for better quality replacements for less...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Thank you. Are the 5/8 retaining rings usually reusable? Also, how do identify the arbor bearing specifications?

You might remove the bearings and take them with you to a motor repair, or bearing shop and they can read the numbers on them and replace them. I have been able to reuse the retaining rings most of the time, the bearing shop might have replacements too, take those in with you. Some of the good hardware stores and auto parts shops hve retaining rings too.

Once you have the bearings in hand, you might call Accurate Bearing in Addison, IL--if you don't have luck finding them locally. If you call them, ask for Lynne, have the bearings and calipers in hand (and know how to use them--Lynne is awesome, but she's not terribly patient!!) Advantage of a local bearing supply is that if you take them the arbor, they may remove & press new for a nominal fee. Then again, some houses have a minimum bench fee that would rival buying the tools to do it yourself.
Good luck!!

I'm trying to locate a local bearing supply place. What type of company would that be? The Sears parts site has the replacement for my saw for about $15. When I replaced the pulleys I took the assembly to an auto supply shop and they removed them for me with a gear puller...which I didn't have.

Industrial supply shops and power transmission specialists. Any kind of power transmission involves shafts and bearings. As long as you don't bend the retaining rings getting them off they should be reusable. be careful though. They are usually spring steel and can go an amazing distance if you pop them off without keeping your hand over them.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I found that the noise coming from my 113.298750 was in fact the 2" pulley loosening up on the shaft. Simple fix. With the
saw unplugged just reach in and you can feel the pulley position. If it is too close to the end of the shaft loosen the set screw
and move it back to the correct position. Re-tighten, and you are ready to go.

if it is the pully.. add another set screw on top of the 1st and it won't loosen again..

Try popping the bearing seals out and greasing the bearings. They may just be getting dry.
