    Walker turner TS

    First, I dont have pics, waiting for the camerea to come in on tuesday. I just picked up a Walker Turner ts w2 extention on the right side and the 1 one the left. It also came with a Biesemeyer 50" rail and fence.It is a cabinet saw. Table is is great shape. Run smoth with a 2hp motor on it. Paid $500. We had to take all the ext. tables off to move it. Cant wait to get the shop floor done so we can get in place and use it.

    It is a 10' saw, but the way it is setup you could run a 12" without a problem. At one point someone changed the extention tables from the soild ones to the light weight ones. The grate style are on it now. They work fine for me.

    Is that one of the geared motor saws? Not that it matters - just think they're unusual and a bit interesting. That's a nice saw, especially with the Bies, 2hp motor, and brand name. If / when you would decide to sell it, you certainly won't lose any cash. Walker Turner has a bit of a cult following. I've got a WT drill press and have rebuild a 24" scroll saw. Nice stuff. As soon as i've got some time to play (hopefully in a few weeks), i'll get my "new" 1959 cabinet saw up and running. Can't wait - i understand your impatience.
    Have fun with it - looking forward to the pics.

    I have a couple of Walker Turner tools, and I like them! I hate the gray though, think I may paint them something a little more cheerfull. Hows a black drill press with flames sound?

    Like you're drilling magnesium with a dull bit.

    Seriously though, Walker Turner has a good rep. The only issue i've seen come up repeatedly is that some of the bearings they used had extended inner races and are no longer available. Don't know if that effects that saw though.

    Have fun with it.

    I just copied this from a file I had of a post on "The Practical Machinist" forum.

    I got parts from the company mentioned, and the service was good. They seem to know their machines well.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Doing some searches, I came up with the contact information for a company called Walker Turner Serviced Machinery LLC. I sent them the pictures of the press and within 24 hours I received this response:

    This is a classic Model 1100 20" drill press. The unit appears to have been set up as a production drill press with crank head and single table. We have a replacement return spring (new) avail, and some other parts (bearings etc) as needed to rebuild. We can also start you off with a full service instruction bulletin for this machine.

    WT 1100 Drill Press Instruction Sheet package................................$12.00

    We accept check, MO or Credit Card. If you would like to pay by Credit Card, we will send you an e-payment invoice via PayPal (PayPal account not required).

    Walker Turner Serviced Machinery LLC
    PO Box 666
    Coventry, CT 06238

    a subsequent email about the Instruction Sheet yielded the following:

    The manual will contain parts breakdown, part numbers, everything you could possibly want to know about the machine. Vintage of your drill is 1940's. We have color perfect enamel paint - special bearings (new) etc. Many of our parts are reverse engineered new manufactured items.
