Hi guys! I’m new to the site and was wondering if someone might be able to help me. I ve been handed the task in getting rid of quite a bit of machinery the majority of it being Walker Turner. Table saw ,band saw a couple lathes drill press Atlas and Craftmans. Tools and accessories that go with them. The lathes and drill press are all sitting on hand crafted heavy duty cabinets and I’m talking heavy duty. The cabinets are really well crafted. I have pictures of all.it all belonged to a friend of mine who’s dad passed away some years ago, who I might add made the cabinets that the equipment sits on. I wondering if anyone would know of a web-site I can put them on to sell them. Everything works by the way. Any help would be appreciated. My name is Sonny and I can be reached at my email henrygrau@aol.com .thanks

You can post them over at OWWM (in the BOYD section), where they will love you for it. Lots of W/T fans over there. Just don’t ask ‘what are they worth’ – it’s against the rules and up to you to figure out what to sell them for. CL is another option, but your audience would be more limited, as not everyone is looking for a vintage machine, and your location will play a big part of who sees it. At OWWM, they can and do have ways to transport machines around the country – for free :)

Cheers,
Brad

PS: The W/T 16” band saw is one of my quest machines :)

I’m not in the market but I love my Walker-Turner Bandsaw now that I got it up and running. It’s a tremendous machine.

Yep! I have a WW-2 vintage 14” Walker Turner bandsaw and its a heavy cast iron monster. Extremely well made! These are sought after!

I have a WT jointer, grinder and two DP900 drill presses. They do now what they did the day they were sold. Very solid machines.

Post some pics, might find a buyer right here for something.

WT band saw are great. I have a 16’’ one I restored. It runs so smooth and quiet you sometime have to check if it’s on or off.

LOL – The last W/T 16” machine I went to look at (CL deal) was badly bastardized, broken and welded in dozens of places, missing chunks of cast iron, the table tilt mechanism, upper guides and blade guards and had some big honking 5” casters bolted directly to the cast iron base. It did have the original motor though! They are sweet machines for sure, and it’s a shame to see how some have been treated over the years.

Cheers,
Brad

No need to use photobucket, upload photos from your own computer…
