Question Craftsman bandsaw parts list

Wanted: parts list or owner's manual that may have accompanied an old Craftsman band saw... Model 103 2430. Any old timers out there have such an animal?, will pay for xeroxing/postage. It's about 35 years old and it was given to me long ago. Has served me well, but now it needs some love and guide replacements. Anyone know of the whereabouts of replacement guide parts? All sources have such for newer machines, but not old solid unit such as the 103. No plastic anywhere on this unit. As is usual, this unit also uses 80 inch blades. Sources for Craftsman boneyard parts welcome.

Did you try sears parts? They have a online parts list and diagrams. I have a 113.24350 and got new tires about a year ago that way. It must be at least 30 years old by now.

Now if you are looking for guides I stopped using the sears ones 10-12 years ago and went to fiber 3/8"x3/8" found in many catalogs, they even have ceramic one now. If you need more then just the blocks carter makes a much better system but it is $150. More bearings and better adjustments.

Good luck and good hunting,

Ed

Steveo, you might get lucky for a manual by calling sears parts line (1-800-469-4663) They still have some old manuals available. Good luck.

Did you ever find what you were looking for?

We have a lot more members everyday and I have reposted request a second time and gotten answers when the first time didn't work. I would also move the post to the general woodworking area, you shouldn't have buy something like this.
