12" Bandsaw Motor

(La Grange,Tx)

I have a Craftsman 12: Bandsaw, Model 113.247310 that is in need of a motor. Motor heats up and smokes after about 30 seconds. Any ideas about where to get one or can this one be rebuilt? Motor part number is 816613 in the parts list in manual. Any help would be appreciated.

Try Grizzly they have several motors for equipment and I found their prices were better than most. Just replaced a shaper motor and they were about $80.00 cheaper.

My motor went out, just like yours, years ago. I replaced it with a 110-volt, 1350 rpm, 1/2-horse, sealed motor from a junked water pump. It has been working, day-in and day-out for about 15 years. Cost 10 bucks at the time.

I have one doing the same thing. I found the bushing in the front of the motor bad. The trick is getting parts. I can order them. I just get mine in and will try to get it together this week end
