Does the price seem about right for something like that?

Hendrie & Bolthoff Manufacturing & Supply Co.
This supplier and manufacturer of mining equipment operated from at least 1862 to 1964. The principals were Charles F. Hendrie and Henry Bolthoff. There is no question that they manufactured mining equipment. They sold woodworking equipment badged with their name, but it is not yet known whether they made some woodworking machines themselves, or only sold rebadged OEM machines.


To me, that is a $50 machine due to the missing bits and work that would be required to get it up to speed. Unless I had one I was trying to find parts for, then it might be worth a bit more :)


PS: Many of the large band saws from that era were similar in design, with those big “C” shaped frames.

I had a similar vintage Crescent 36” when I had my shipyard. It was a magnificent workhorse and weighed in at about 1600 lbs. these old tools will work (have worked) for ever. If you have a use for something like that, it’s not a bad deal if not, not so much. This isn’t a hobby saw.
As for the price, you would need to see it and make decisions based on what you learned.
