In the late 1920s this firm made a 14-inch bandsaw and a 14-inch disk sander. Surviving examples are exceedingly uncommon.

John W. Majek was a resident of Portland, Oregon and his name appeared occasionally in The Oregonian newspaper between 1910 and 1943, but no specifics related to woodworking machinery were among them. 

John William Majek was born in 1888 and died in 1973.

Majek Pattern Works is listed in the Oregon Bureau of Labor's 1924, 1932, 1936, and 1938 directories (Biennial Report and Industrial Directory). The address was 30 Front in the first two entries, and 76 S.W. Front Ave. in the third & fourth.
