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.
