I think it is a “Cresent” I have a 12” version that looks to have the same style fence and leg configuration. David Marks from the show Woodworks, has a 16” version. They are pretty old machines and have babitt bearings, I also believe that they would have originally been driven by a line shaft and belt system, as mine didn’t have any place to mount a motor, so I built a mount. David just has his motor setting on the floor. A motor big enough to run a large jointer doesn’t move easily! To tighten or loosen the belt tension, you just slide the motor where you want the tension to be.

just curious, what sort of work would you be doing to use a jointer of this size? It seems like it would be unwieldy for most projects unless you’re talking some seriously thick wood. And then of course that adds in other issues.

Shipbuilding and patternmaking.

Looks kind of like a Northfield to me. Moak, Yates American,
and other companies made these machines.

I think 3 toe jointers were the only style the armed forces
would buy.

just because i know someone will ask, my biz partner builds amazing live edge furnitue. the hope is that this will be a great time saver flattining slabs.

I think my hand truck can handle that. Should I bring help to lift it?

That is one impressive machine! I’d almost hate to see how much a replacement cutter head would be for that sucker…

Crescent did not make “3 toed” jointer. It appears to be either an American or Yates-American. Good heavy arn that will out last ALL of us. Great price too. Wish it were closer I would be all over it

There’s a much smaller one (only a measly 20”) in the same area. http://rochester.craigslist.org/tls/3663438980.html

I can’t imagine leaning over one of these things to push a board across.
