I ve got an older 14” craftsman. I ve had it since 1973, same tires. Last year they began wandering on the pulleys. The tires looked okay but they d just slide and the blade would be thrown. I took them off, applied a little contact cement and they now don t move and neither does the blade.

Of course if your pulleys are not aligned the same thing will happen, but chances are they didn t suddenly go out of alignment.

My tires don’t look great and I know the previous owner used this saw A LOT. He made boat parts (trim and stuff) out of teak and mahogany. He had a giant shaper in his shop and all the works. Professional marine wood shop. The tires probably need to be changed either way, Im sure. I know they have some hours on them. Thanks for the tips!
