Long hair, baggy robes, gloves and dangling sleeves are recommended safety gear when using this machine. Ties are required as well but no tie clips.

For those with no sense of humor or no common sense, heeding the above statements will get you killed.

What an awesome saw! The casting has Chicago Machine Exchange cast into it, but it is believed that those were actually made by the Sidney Tool Co. located in Ohio, and/or perhaps the Silver Mfg. Co., also located in Ohio:

I can’t find a picture of a 26” saw that looks the same (base is different), but there is a 27” saw sold under that name that looks like it might be the same saw, and it has been incorrectly identified as a 26” model before by many:

Probably built somewhere between 1910 and 1920.

Cheers,
Brad

Interesting Brad, one night we had our differences but since then sure appreciate you knowledge! My Bad.
Now seeing this, I wonder if the one for sale has the wheel covers? I bet not. If I had the need and a way to transport it I would buy it, it is near me. I bet that hog, like a cast iron Walker Turner in HS shop in the 60s, just was nothing but power/torque.

Had an uncle that worked for Monarch Machine Co. and went around the country trouble-shooting all the machines the company made. Factory is still there, mainly empty. A part of the building has been leased for Ring Can Co. more as a wharehouse/shipping point.

I wonder IF that Sidney machine Tool co. is now dba Sidney Tool & Die?

I shop over in Sidney OH couple times a month….something different from where I live, in Bellefontaine,OH..

This phrase comes to mind

I bet it doesnt have the crap parts my 2012 model BP305 has

Plastic Knob with a metal insert which spins on the plastic
a Trunnion gear broken machine is now no longer sold, I wonder why?

I should add however the H&F rep is attempting to obtain parts for it.

$300 for that is a steal. Someone from OWWM should snag that. Wish I was close.

Great deal.
Safety was a state of mind once. Now it is all about guards….... times change.
I used to have a Crescent 36” saw that undoubtedly came “bare” as this one is but had a wooden box guard added prior to my acquiring it. It weighted in at around 1600 lbs and was a wonderful machine.

That is a very cool saw and if it actually even kind of works, is a really good deal! That pile of blades is a nice bonus too and at the length that would be required for a saw of that size, there’s another $20 – $40 per blade. The motor looks very large for a 2hp as well, vintage to the saw I would assume. I’d love to roll this into any factory and power it up on the day of a scheduled OSHA visit and sit back to watch their reaction to seeing it running!

I would love to have that saw, rebuild it to new glory and maybe add just a tad bit more safety to it.

It was an old aircraft hangar that used to house coastal reconiasnace aircraft in WW II. Big but colder than hell in winter.
