I have a Craftsman 113.2991 10" table saw which works great but I was wondering if I should replace the arbor bearing. I noticed when putting new pulleys that the blade and shaft moves about 1/32". There is no wobble/play and the bearing itself seems to be good(you can spin the blade with your finger and it will turn for a minute or so).

Is this normal?

Your correct model is 113.29991

Your could have a missing arbor bearing retainer ring, but most likely problem is worn bearings. anything over .005 is excess in my opinion and I replace bearings with that amount of play. a poswsible reason for excess bearing thrust play is a mis-aligned arbor or fence. the arbor needs to be parallel to the miter slot. measure with the blade fully raised. mark a tooth with felt marker, measure the distance from that tooth to the miter slot with the tooth to the front o0f the saw, and then with it to the rear of the saw. use a machinest ruler for the greatest accuracy. after the arbor is trued, adjust the fence to be parallel to the miter slot. fence is adjusted by loosening the screws that hold the fence to the fence clamp.
