1939 Walker-Turner Driver Line Drill Press Series 700This is my latest restoration job. It took me quite a while tocomplete but I’m very happy with the results.Unique to this drill press is the fact the shaft has 4 sets of ball bearings..You talk about smoooooooooth running.. It’s excellent!Read the OLD brochure for it! I’ve advertised it now for $300.00. I sell these pretty quick.My last one was a 1948 Duro Drill Press Model SF3083 and it was gone in the first 24 hour...

Please be guessing what Lazy Larry is up to now… here is a lamination that I started today for a new found friend, Scott… Closer pic. One more.

This will be glued up and then shaped into the final product… Let us see who can come up with the correct answer &...

From table legs to mallet heads #1: Recycling is fun

05-07-2012 01:03 AM by ShipWreck | 2 comments »

I found these table legs at a “repo” property I was inspecting for the bank. They were tossed aside for trash. When I picked them up for a closer look, I couldnt believe how heavy they were. I have been looking for some wood to make a couple mallet heads and thought these would work pretty well. I have no idea what wood this is, but it is very dense and heavy. I will be getting some handle material in the next couple days.

Walker-Turner Drill Press #2: Drill press restore mostly completed.

05-21-2012 12:19 AM by SirFatty | 4 comments »

Well, the drill press is mostly completed. The only thing I need to do is fabricate a cover to hide the belt and power cords. Not exactly a match to the original color, but now it looks like a tractor! Next project is to build a cart, this thing is to heavy to move around by lifting it. Who ever had this before really used and abused it! Someone welded a T handle onto a bolt to make it easier to position the table. Used an old extension cord for the wiring.

Called Timbedwolf and finally ordered a decent blade for my Central Machinery BS. 3/8 AS 6TPI. This should smooth out the cuts and make me sand less.

How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #21: A Couple More Vintage Delta Machines

06-22-2012 03:44 AM by Chickenfoot | 1 comment »

Like I stated in my last posting, I picked up a 1949 Delta 14” Band Saw last night for $150. I should be able to make a couple bucks on this one. I also just picked up two 1950’s Delta 1460 12” Wood Lathes from a friend that need a little cash, Paid $400 for both. More then I wanted to pay but it helps a good friend and as long as I can make my money back I’m OK with it. Should take about 2 weeks to get these out of the garage… I hope. Started with $2695 minus $5...

My first yard sale woodworking find

07-21-2012 08:07 PM by Chris McDowell | 9 comments »

First of all, I went to 4 yard sales last weekend and didn’t find squat. So today, my wife and I were coming back from the grocery store and we saw a sign near our house that said “Moving Sale – Furniture, Tools.” So we followed the signs to the sale and I looked around, really hoping to find a circular saw or a router. They said some other guy wiped them out of the tools, but they still had a couple of pipe clamps and he said I could have them both for 5 bucks. ...

bandsaw #2: working on wheels

09-04-2012 02:10 AM by spamfilterman | 0 comments »

I’m still working on the wheels.Now they’re round and crowned. Also I’ve formed the drive pulley.I tore apart two old treadmills, and used one as a temporary motor to spin the wheel while shaping it. I have what will probably be the final motor on the bandsaw, but I used the treadmill motor for its variable speed. I kept it fairly slow since I have zero wood turning experience. It took awhile to get the wheels round, but I think they turned out alright.Next steps are to ...

Jewelry Boxes Journey #1: 777 days of LumberJocks

10-09-2012 12:50 PM by Sodabowski | 5 comments »

Hi guys, look what kind of trouble you have all put me into: 777 days and $57 later, this is where I am now. Buying expensive drill bits. And I’m loving it! The guilty one concerning the purchase of this monster 3 1/4” Forstner bit is Al, aka Boxguy, because of this . He made me realize that jewelry drawers can be as simple as a round hole in a wood chunk, which made me redesign a part of one of the jewelry boxes I’m currently working on. Hence this mon...
