Crescent Machine Co.
Wood Working Machinery
Crescent 12" jointer
Date of Manufacturer:
4/5/2004 12:00:00 AM
This machine was apparently originally re-sold by a New York company called Olney & Warrin, per the attached metal tag. It was used for years in a Central New York State factory, and has been unusually well cared for. It was advertised for sale in a classified ad and purchased near Syracuse, NY. It has a replacement round cutterhead made by Tawney Co., patented by F. Stutzman in 1913. It has been converted to a 5 HP 220v single-phase Leeson motor.

Front handwheels show early vintage; cutter guard is (surprise!) missing. 5 HP single-phase Leeson motor visible.
Metal tag by Olney & Warrin, casting marks by Cresent. Wood is part of motor platform.
