Topic tags/keywords: walker turner table saw saw free resource

I need to make room for a new machine so this has to go. Ten inch cabinet saw from the 40’s I’m guessing. It was my main saw but I upgraded to a 70’s unisaw. This got moved to a seldom used shop in case I needed it. I haven’t. Motor is 220 but could be reconfigured back to 110, though I don’t recommend it. Here’s the lumberJocks offer. It is free for anyone that can come and get it, it’s in good running order and I hate to part with it but I’m not using it. As of Jan 1 it will be listed on Craigslist for money not free. You saw it here first, it will be listed on other forum in a couple of hours. When I can find some photos all add as necessary.
Happy holidays, more to come.
Jim

I’ve gotten a lot from these forums and LJ in particular. And I’m glad to give back hopefully to some one that will use it and not flip it but that is the risk. I’ve been on other forums longer but feel like I could drop in on any one of my friends here on a moments notice. And the “state of the shop forum” priceless.

That’s the problem it’s a long skinny neck of the woods to get here if you don’t already live on Long Island, NY.

Very generous of you. I love old tools – wish I wasn’t ~1600-1700 miles away. I hope an LJ gets this.

Nothing like older tools. This one is much quieter than the unisaw which took some getting used to.

I’m a big fan of Walker-Turner stuff, so I hope this one ends up in the right hands, preferably to another LJer. Kudos, Jim.

oh that looks sweet. And I’ve got a project coming up in long island in January.

Nope, don’t have room. But man that would look good along side the WT bandsaw and WT lathe. Nope, don’t have room, nope, don’t have room. nope, don’t have room.

Somebody take it quick before I do something I’ll regret.

It’s a good saw Don. The W-T tools like to be together. My drill presses, lathe and jointer are going to miss it. I sold the 16” bandsaw years ago when I had to move to a smaller shop.

For those not familiar with Walker Turner. This saw is a TA1180B. I had one and they are nice little saws, run well and cut great. My best guess on manufacture date is 1944-1946. WT did not publish much on their serial numbers and the 1180B was only made for a few years. The 1180B will hold it own against just about all the other small cabinet saws. If you are in need of a good little saw that does not take up much room and still need portability this is a saw for you. If you need a second saw for cross cutting this one would fit the bill nicely.

Well, damn it, someone jump on this deal!

Walker Turner made some great stuff! I have a late 1940s 14” cast iron Walker Turner bandsaw I bought used way back in the late 1950s when I was in my late teens and trying to get my workshop going. I still have it, its in beautiful shape, and I use it almost every day. I wouldn’t have anything else! I would drive from Atlanta all the way to Long Island to get it if I didn’t already have a very complete shop.

I’ve got an offer to pick up the saw, but it is still pending. He lives in the Albany area, about 5 hours away. I’m sending him the dimensions tomorrow to see if it will fit in his vehicle.

Happy New Year!
