My latest restoration. A 1914 20 inch Crescent band saw. This is my 3rd Crescent machine, the other two being a 18 inch jointer and an 18 inch planer. They are great machines.

    That, sir, is beautiful!

    And you are to be commended as a true artist.

    Absolutely a work of art and piece of history! I just acquired a machine that’s identical to yours and i’m in the beginning stages of restoring my machine. I was wondering what color paint did you use and what is the value of this machine? Thanks.

    Beautiful restoration… the burlwood safety guards look fantastic. Brass gleaming, pinstriping, color. Perfect work.

    I have a pre 1905 model of this saw. Is the upper wheel bearing on yours babbit? Mine is steel on cast iron.
