A New Toy
Posted here instead of my sub forum, as I wanted everybody to see, particularly Dave, as I know he has a soft spot for these things. :)
I love the simplicity of these machines and legendary reliability. Mechanically, all this one needs is cleaning and lubricating. Cosmetically, it needs a full paint strip-down and a new paint job.
Walker Turner, probably from late 40's early 50's. 3phase.
This are Before pictures. I will revisit this thread (many months from now), when the machine is restored and post After pictures.
Walker Turner has a very distinctive "alien head". I love it.
Another addition - 16" Delta Milwaukee table saw, also from 1950s. Cutting thick lumber with it will be a breeze, but first, I will need to get it into the basement. It's a monster. :(
Awesome machine! Great find.
:Ooooh: A thing of beauty! Congrats!!
Sweet. Goodluck getting it moved .
That looks like a candidate for the sand blaster. Should be sweet when it's done.
Unfortunately, it will have to be hand-stripped and wire-brushed. It would require a large sand blast cabinet for the task and I have no access to one.

SWEET! They just dont make em like that any more. Congrats..
