I have decided to sell my Crescent 8” jointer. It is dated from 1925-1928 and appears to be all original. All of the handwheels turn freely and all adjustments work well. It is powered with a 2hp Fairbanks Morse single phase 110/220V repulsion motor. The motor is quiet and the jointer is very smooth. I will require a few belts soon as they are beginning to separate. The fence is also original. The cutter head guard is a 12” Oliver, these jointers were not all originally supplied with guards. The cutter head has ball bearings, no babbitt. There is some minor damage to the infeed table that does not affect performance. The blades will require sharpening, I hit a couple of knots in some really hard maple and chipped them. 4 blade safety cutterhead. If anyone is interested send me a message and we can talk. I do have a ride for the machine to Missouri in the spring. There are no cracks and or repairs of any kind on the machine. It is a very clean and nice example of a very vintage early Crescent machine.

OMG!!!! I nearly wept as I read it. If I hadn’t done all that whinin when I got my PM6”, I’d probably be doing business with you right now;) Since I’m not shy, I’ll be the first to ask: what on Earth are you going to replace that thing with?

I’m sad that I can’t have it. It’s going to be the centerpiece of someone’s shop. It’s absolutely beautiful. I’m going back up to look again.

Whoa, its incredible. There is nothing that can beat old vintage machinery, nothing. I suppose this weight like a 1000 lbs? It would probably fall through my wood floor.

RickL…..It is indeed an Oliver 144 direct drive. I do agree the Crescent has some coolness to it that the Oliver doesnt, but I am leaning towards an all Oliver shop. It will take some time to get there but it my goal. I will only be looking at the major tools in Oliver, table saw, jointer and planer.
