Craftsman 113 Arbor nut size?

27501 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Steve Neul
Anyone? It's a "3hp" craftsman 10'' contractor saw with the cast iron top and wings. I apparently have never bought or owned standard sized wrenches, and none of my metric wrenches fit over the nut. Does anyone know off hand what the size of that nut is - the one that holds the blade on?

Silly question, but thanks for any responses.

PS I don't have any calipers so I can't measure all cool like, and i've tried channel locks to no avail.

Possibly, I donno?... Mine, all 5 of them measure 1-1/8" on the nut, 7/8" on the shaft.

I measured the nut and it measures 1 -1/16" and fits a box wrench that size. The tri-cornered wrench that came with some of my saws measured 1 1/8 - from flat to flat across, and when the nut is inserted there is a gap from the nut to the flat.....my bad. :blink:
