Craftsman 10" tangle saw blade washer(s)

I recently obtained a third-hand Craftsman Model 152 table saw. The blade had two "bell" washers on the outboard side of the blade. They are different sizes of "cupping", such that they nest one way, but not in the opposite order. Should there be two washers nested? Or does one go inboard? Or should there only be one cupped washer on the outboard side of the blade?

Wow, it must be spell check Wednesday..first it's building things with tendons and now people are using tangle saws.. Is this Doctor Mengala's workshop?

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

typically ...

There is a flat washer on the arbor or drive side and a cupped but flat faced washer on the nut side. Do not use 2 washers on the nut side. Starting at the arbor, you could turn one cupped facing out then the blade then the cupped facing in, then the nut but there should always be washers on both the drive side and the nut side.

Some times the arbor has a "built in" washer or flat face, then the inside or arbor washer is not required. The purpose is to hold the blade perpendicular to the shaft from both sides. With no washer or flat there is not enough surface area on the nut alone to provide substantial pressure to keep the blade perpendicular.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

TABLE saw....

There is a cupped, fixed, large diameter "washer" built into the arbor side, so seems to me that should suffice. I thought only one on the outboard side should suffice. Thanks.
