This machine introduced me to OWWMs. I bought it about 14 years ago. The last picture is a scanned photo I took right after I brought it to my shop. Despite the looks it was in great shape and only needed an upper guide. I replaced it with a Black Diamond/Wright guide. No missing or broken castings. The tires are still in great shape. It's been converted to ball bearing. I dis-assembled, cleaned, lubed and painted. The guards were solid sheet steel so I had a welder cut them out and tack in the expanded mesh. It's been in storage the last 9 years because I moved out of my 3 phase shop, but I recently installed a phase converter and she's running again. I use a Lennox 3tpi Tri-master carbide blade for resawing exotic hardwood billets, which it does very well.

It has a low serial # (4 digits)stamped on the table, but all of the four digit Crescent bandsaws have the earlier base, so I'm not certain the table wasn't swapped out. I'd like to do a little more research on that before adding the # to the registry.
