I started a dialog with Rob Morris on a Cresson Morris machine and ended up touring Rob's shop and meeting up with his father in law Joe Leaf. I snagged a couple of shots of Joe's machines - he has made some sawdust and filings in his day. Joe provided the following info: "Duro" 10" Table Saw.

This has been my primary shop saw since 1980. I bought it from a friend with
the Delta Fence and rails already adapted. It has no nameplate or marks of
any kind. Only recently identified as a "Duro" by John Orvis. Thanks John.

This was ID'd by Mike Levine who will soon become famous for a revolutionary diagnosis.
Nice large top. Sturdy construction. A Delta fence system was adapted(nicely) to the original "flatbar" fence rail. I originally thought this might be a later model Boice Crane cabinet saw because of several details.
