hi, i been haveing a problem with finding a makers mark on an antique band saw.
The band saw’s C frame is about 2 feet tall, I don’t have a clue where to find makers mark, I looked almost every where, the only marks I have found was the part numbers on each of the main parts like BS 1, BS 2, BS 3, BS 4, I’m a begainer at collecting. I know the saw is at least more than 100 years or at least slightly older?, I’ll be very grateful for any idea’s/ I’ll have a picture ready to post later when someone posts a comment.
Around the turn of the last century, there were many small manufacturers of machines, some of which sold to retailers that liked to add their own labels. That included Sears & Roebuck, Montgomery Wards, etc.
An excellent resource for info on vintage machines is http://vintagemachinery.org/
