Just now starting to trade up for and buy my ‘final’ tools. Found this Walker Turner coming up for auction. What would be a good price to get this for? Heard alot of good things about them.

Ask the guys over at Old Wood Working Machines www.owwm.com, from my experience there they have been on the low side but still helpful. Don’t post a link to the auction or picture linked to the auction there because it’s against the rules to post a link to a live online auction (if that’s what it is). Just describe the make and model.

Looks to be a 16”. It depends on the interest in the machine by other bidders, as with any auction. I would expect the final price to be in the $450 to $550 range. If you have a chance to preview the machine prior to the auction take a very close look at the table trunnions and tilt mechansm. They are know weak spots and most are either broken or cracked. I would also look at the tracking adjustment as they do break easily. If the machine appears sound it is an awesome saw and will last for many more years.FYI….If you post on owwm.com they will not give ann appraisal, to many variables.

I’ve gotten appraisals at owwm when I’ve asked, but I’ve supplied a picture but not linked to the auction. Sometimes without a picture to get a ballpark high/low reference point. Not always in threads though, sometimes via PM’s.
