Hey guys -

I recently removed the arbor sub assembly housing to replace some worn bearings, on my craftsman 113 table saw.

Removal of the housing was simple as I removed the c clip and long washer. Took a little persistence to remove it from the shaft but nothing too bad.

After getting everything back together, I noticed the arbor housing shifted side to side…about .0625” +/-.
I tapped the rod that the arbor housing slides onto, so that the c clip sat more flush…thought that fixed it, but that was a temp fix. I ran the saw a couple times and now the looseness is back. Is there a something I’m missing in regards to reinstalling the arbor housing?

To be clear, there is no play in the arbor shaft itself as everything is very snug with the new bearings. This issue is regarding the shaft that the arbor housing install onto the trunion.

Any help or feedback would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Could there have been shims on that arbor shaft that were placed during its initial alignment? Is it possible that you missed them when you removed the sub assembly?

Emerson made a bunch of saws for Sears over the years… so you kind of need to be a bit more specific as to which one you have.

My apologies, I assumed the arbor / trunion assembly was the same on sll 113s, other than the tilt being on the left side on older units.

For clarification, It is the 113.298032.

Regarding shims…I do not recollect there being anything besides the washer and clip.

At this point, I’m considering drilling and tapping the trunnion to lock the shaft down w a set screw.

Have your say...
