table saw problem

My Craftsman 10" table saw started making a terrible noise and I was able to figure out that it was a bad arbor bearing. I ordered a new one and then managed to figure out I don't have a clue as to how to replace it.

It's a Model No. 113 298140 if that makes any difference. It's an old one and probably worth less than $100, but I like it because of its heavy metal construction.

Any way to save this tool?

If you have the part, it should not be too hard for a mechanically inclined person to install it. Also, if you found the part, there should be a manual available that should have a diagram of the parts and assembly.

My local auto parts store has a machine shop--they pressed in some bearings for me once--

I think the guys liked the change of pace--only charged me a few bucks--Might be worth dropping in and asking--

I agree that it sounds like a relatively simple project. If you don't have a manual, it should be available at, and while unlikely that it will tell you how to change the bearing, it should at least show all of the parts, so that you get everything back in the right order, and it should show you how to adjust the heel, as that will obviously need to be reset.
