Boice Crane Woodworking Tools

Boice Crane LogoAccording to the 1936 Boice Crane Woodworking Tools catalog, William B. and John E Boice started manufacturing woodworking tools in 1910.

"In our twenty-six years of manuafacturing and selling Bench Power Tools, we have furnished woodworking machinery to hundreds of thousands of plants, schools and craftsmen, and gained as many permanent customers and friends." -- John E. boice

The Boice Crane Company was led by four men, Harold G. Crane, John E. Boice, William B. Boice, and James R. Rettie.



It is only natural that hte four men leading the Boice-Crane Organization, with their long years of Boice Crane Band Sawexperience and engineering knowledge, devoted solety to to Boice-Crane Machines, have developed the design of the present machines to a high degree of perfection. You will find Boice-Crane Machines the finest, most accurate, and most substantial bench machinery it is possible to devis for the money.

This experience dates back to 1910 -- back to a time wen Boice-Crane was the very first to pioneer in bench machinery. Our efforts have been so successful that today, our organization owns two new manufacturing plants whick are devoted exclusively to the manufacture of Boice-Crane Bench Machinery."
