    Walker-Turner tablesaw

    This is listed on Craig's list. The item is in Little Rock, Arkansas. I have never heard of this old brand. And the combo table saw/jointer is new to me. Do y'all think his asking price is fair? Or should I forget?
    <<"This is an antique Walker Turner Table Saw with a 6 inch jointer. It's probably 75 years old but still works. It would be great in a workshop but it too heavy to move from job to job. I've got $175 in it and that's what I'll take.">>

    Two things, if you waited to ask us it is probably gone.
    Second, condition is everything.

    But as Todd said,good well respected brand.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Thanks all. I wouldn't be able to get there to pick it up until end of month anyhow. But, I'll call him and see if I can learn more.

    Frank,

    I was looking for a WT when I bought my Yates-American. Great saws, with a classic look.

    Good solid, with a fairly heavy cast table. Phase is something to watch, many of them are 3 phase. That could be a deciding factor for someone, IMO.

    The other saw I was looking for was an Atlas/Clausing/DeWalt, those are very art decco looking, also excellent saws.

    Finding my Yates-American was a no brainer, it is truely an industrial class saw, but the WT is a very capable saw and would have been able to do everything I wanted.
