In between my Blog of Blondie’s Bridal Chest, construction on the front of our house and work I helped a buddy restore a Vintage Walker Turner 16 inch band saw. This thing is a real beauty! Wow, they sure don’t make machines like they use too. It is completely reconditioned inside and out and in great working condition. He is selling this for $600.00. If I had a bigger shop I would love this but my 14” grizzly is easier to move around.

*3/4 Hp Motor, all new wiring and industrial on/ off switch. A 17” by 18” Cast iron table. It has a Re-saw capability of 12 inches. Brand new tires and all new bearings. Dimensions: Depth front to rear 30 1/2”, width 22”. Weight of the cast iron base, 125 pounds. Total weight of approx. 310 pounds. We live in Los Angeles and could arrange delivery through a freight company at buyers expense. We are not looking to make a profit on shipping. Thanks for looking…. Ken

Wow! That sure is a nice band saw! Built to last! All I can do is drool but I know someone is going to scoop this beauty up. Great price too!
