Hi All,

I have an early 1900’s Boice Crane tabletop table saw that is taking up space. It is driven by a v-belt. The motor is missing and the fence doesn’t work. I bought it a couple years ago thinking I could make due. I ended up getting a used Grizzly pedestal table saw, so I have no need for this now.

The link below is NOT to my saw or my shop, but I have the same saw.

If anyone is interested, please let me know. It’s located in NJ just outside of Philadelphia.

I could always use some more clamps or a good, solid workbench!

From the vast number of replies, I can see nobody really wants this thing. I’d hate to just scrap it.

Any positive thoughts on how to get rid of it so it is still useful? Pawn shop perhaps?

Sheesh, seems like a shame to scrap it. Try PM-ing LJ MedicKen, hes an avid restoration guy and may have some buddies that do the same. Good Luck. I think trading is a great idea, even if you get a poke in the eye and a box of donuts, beats melting the old gal down.

Is there a way to re purpose the table to make a router table, or a sharpening station?

Post on OWWM.org forums. Somebody will probably take it
off your hands.

Have your say...
