  • Crescent or Silver 26 inch bandsaw

    One can not have too many bandsaws! I was gifted this old 26 inch bandsaw. It has a unique two piece frame design.

    I have found photo in a 1898 catalogue for Crescent machines (http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/224/10562.pdf

    however, this two piece design disappeared from the 1903 Crescent catalogue (http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/224/17.pdf
    ).

    Apparently there was some mutual manufacturing done between Crescent and Silver so it is difficult to determine who manufactured for who. Some Crescent bandsaws were rebadged as Silver and some Silver bandsaws rebadged as Crescent.

    Not sure what I am going to do with this bandsaw- I have been thinking of turning it into a small drafting table for the shop by adding a wooden top to the bandsaw table. Maybe?

                I enjoy using my 26" Silver bandsaw. I couldn't imagine turning it into a desk though. That being said, if you are serious then I would be interested in a couple of parts.
