Don’t know that saw specifically, but what about some Loctite on the set screw?

That’s the Craftsman 22114, 2nd up the line of what became known as the “zipcode saws”. Sometimes pulleys have a double setscrew….pull out the setscrew and check to see if there’s another one under it. If so, tighten it down too. If not, Loctite should do it.

the double set screw was my first choice but i didnt know if there was more of the problem i was not aware of. i really didnt want to do loctite since on this model you cant see what you are doing. all is done by feel. one more thing, what is a zipcode saw? thanks for all the help.

Zip codes have five digits. The model, 22114, has five digits.
