I have a Craftsman 113.298031 tablesaw. Recently it has started making a whining sound and the blade is easily bogged down. Previously the blade bogged down without the noise and I had to tighten the belt. This seems different. I took the belt off and the motor seems to run well by itself. I suspect bearings on the blade assembly but haven't taken it apart yet. Any suggestions before I get started? Likely just lube? Might need new bearings? Thanks for anything you can do to shorten the repair process.
My son had a Craftsman 10” saw that the shiv or pulley connection to the shaft was loose. It would spin up but was noisy and when he tried to cut the blade stopped. I checked it out and the set screw had backed off a bit and it did damage the shaft because he had tightened the belt and it worked for a while before he called. I tightened the set screw on the shaft the shaft to pulley or shiv is not perfect because of the spinning damage but with the screw tight it works fine.
