Band saw part missing? Answered
Need a little help here. This is a craftsman 10" band saw. The image is directly below the cutting surface. I suspect there is a part missing, maybe a guide or roller. Where the arrows are in the picture, there are holes as if a bar should go across to hold a roller.
Can someone please confirm there's a part missing, tell me the name of the missing part and hopefully where I can order a new one?
One day I was cutting, the blade broke. No big deal, right? I put a new blade on and continued working. It runs pretty well, but the blades pop off pretty easily. It gets very frustrating. Later, I found a wheel (about less than 1/2") in the sawdust. It could only have come from the bandsaw. I didn't find any other parts, but they could have been sucked up by the vacuum.
Thanks for the help!
