We can trace the ownership back to the mid-1950s in Miami, Florida. Prior to that we do not know the history. I have stripped off most of the paint and have found the serial number along with the remnants of the casting ?The Crescent Machine Co. Leetonia Ohio USA?. The upper wheel mount has been replaced. Unfortunately, the new mount was fabricated for function not for style, however the saw has had the new mount probably longer than the original. Restoration is now complete, a new 1/2 hp Dayton Motor, new pulleys from Grainger and tires and blade from Smith-Hamilton. Enjoy the photos.
