Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw walker-turner

I worked in a shop for a while and we used a walker-turner bandsaw. Resently my friend (the shop owner) upgraded to a bigger saw for cutting bowl blanks. He gave me the walker-turner and I am thinking about selling it because I have limited space in my shop. I was wondering what someone might offer for it? Its a 16inch with 10 inch under the guides. It has carter guides and a 5 horse lesson motor. It is a solid cast iron beast in good to very good shape. It runs smoother and quiter than any saw Ive ever used. If anyone is interested or if you could just recommend a fair price it would help.

The Walker Turner is an awesome saw. I would say hold onto it if at all possible. If not, most of the one I have seen sold go in the $400-$500 range. I would go to owwm.com and list if for sale there. They WILL NOT give an estimate on value but it can be listed on the site.

I bought mine for $200, but it only has a half horse motor on it. You can see pics of it in my workshop… photos 5 & 6 Drfixit's Workshop

I wish I were closer. The WT is one of my quest machines.
