I thought so also, $300 dollars doesn’t buy much today.

That is one big honken motor. How many volts would be required to run this?

300$ is a freakin’ steal on that beast! It’s like a Shopsmith on steroids. If I had the space, I’d probably make the 450 mile trip for it. Heck, if that bandsaw had any re-saw capacity, I’d be tempted to keep it and the motor and sell the rest.

That is an incredible piece of machinery. Makes you wonder if it was a one-off, or did some company actually sell those?

Also, looking at the one picture, there seems to be a cordset lying on the floor and against the machine with an older plug on it. Looks like no more than maybe 10/3 or maybe 8/3 portable cable, (doubtful it is that large), which would be 240VAC single phase, maybe a 30 amp circuit? Not too bad, not much more than a large water heater.

$300 for the machinery, and another $200 for the beer and help from friends!

Crescent made a similar machine called a
“Universal Woodworker”. American Sawmill
Machinery also had some similar models.

I don’t recognize this one though.

I’d sure like to see one of the Lumber jocks get it so we could watch the rebuild and restoration
