I found this Jointer in a local classified ad and am in the process of working out the sale with the current owner.
Sale completed. Will pick up early July 06 when the research will begin in earnest.
I dated the machine based on the cutter guard bracket which first appeared in the 1910 catologue and the lack of a vertical scale on the fence which first appeared in the 1912 catalogue. Knowing that parts for this machine probably sat around for awhile it's likely that it was made shortly after 1912.
This machine was in use at a cabinet shop until a few years ago. It has resided in the seller's basement shop since then.
More data and history as it comes available.
Cutter Head has a Patent date of Dec. 1909.
Paint appears to be mostly original with the Crescent decal (logo?) on the back of the machine.
There is a depth scale machined (stamped?) into the fence face that is very different from the one Crescent intorduced in the 1912 catalogue and seen on several other Jointers in the registry.
My thanks to the owner David Patterson for working with me to date it & Keith Rucker for his valuable assistance. It set my mind at ease and made the buy decision easy.
Home, on the new MB and nearly ready to plug in.
The odd duck scale.
