Got this Craftsman/King-Seeley bandsaw for free over Thanksgiving 2018. It ran fine but vibrated to beat the band. I've used a fair amount of rubbing compound, polish, sandpapers of different grit, etc. It looks better now but am not done with it yet. Will post more pictures later.

I replaced the motor belt and 95% of the vibration disappeared. The stand needs to be rebuilt - its a bit wobbly. I have tires on the way which should help with the bit of blade wobble remaining.

It had a ruined retaining ring between the drive pulley and the bottom wheel. I have been unable to find a replacement online, via Craftsman (SearsPartsDirect) or other outlets. The ring is called out as part number 41715 for both the 103.24280 and 103.24260 bandsaw models. Can anybody recommend where I can find a replacement for this part? I also need one knob, part #18619. Suggestions welcome!
