Wilton Boice Crane Division

by David Phillips
(Canton, Texas )

It is a 10" Wilton Boice Crane Division. The blade tilts to the right by using a crank wheel on the left side of heavy cast iron base. There is a bolt at the back to tighten to keep the angle. The blade is raised/lowered using a crank wheel on the front with another shaft to tighten after blade height is set.


It has a 62" Delta Unifence Saw Guide bolted onto the front of the cast iron table. the old saw has not been used during the last 7 years and all adjustments were "frozen". I spent a day cleaning, oiling, and freeing all parts. There is a sticker near the motor saying Poly Flex Belt 5 M975. A stamped plate on upper,left of base tells it is Cat.#552950 Serial #130. SchillerPK. Illinois.

It is a floor model with a heavy cast iron base to the floor. It is very accurate. The best table saw i have owned.The miter slide has a hold-down clamp made onto it. The blade raising mechanism is made to raise and lower straight up/down, not in an arc.

Wilton - Boice Crane Table Saw
by: Mike Bowen

I have serial number 136. Just got it from a guy in Fort Worth and it's in fantastic shape. Can't wait to clean and oil and adjust! Buying old iron is better than buying a new imPort!

My Wilton Boice Crane table saw is working great !
by: David Phillips pelletholder@aol.com

I had to put new bolts in to secure the angle and elevation of the blade. I had to add set screws to the blade drive pulley because the key had bbn missing for ? years causing damage to the shaft.I want a copy of operating manuel and info on anyone that knows where to get bearings and parts that will work in case of future failure.

The blade on my Wilton Boice Crane tilts to the right when looking from the rear when tightening the bolt to secure the setting.
