Couldn't help myself...when my friend offered me his good ole Walker Turner drill press, I just had to have it.

For the longest time he used it for mortises...yes...he gave me the attachments also.

It needs a bit of cleaning but it hums like a beauty...smooth...true turning chuck...the whole shebang...put in a few drops of oil in the oiley thingie and away it went...

Based on the serial number it is a Type 2, 1952 version. Just a tad younger than myself...

Next step, but as a retiree I can't say when, cleaning and reassembly...

Here's some pics...(just to prove it really happened) :grin:

You mean the drill holes in the table...?

I'm guessing he was testing the accuracy of the swivel head...teehee...

If I could match the color, I might fill the ole girl's holes with a dab of JB Weld...don't think so...

Great acquisition, Nick, Those are a dream to use. Did the two spanner wrenches come with it to remove the chuck? How large of hp. motor does it have? It looks used but in great shape. I use my old Atlas ALL the time, and enjoy just how solid those old machines were built.

use a pair of fitted drift punches.. short or stubbies work better than long ones...

Like Herb I love how sturdy those old machines are. They didn't chintz on the amount of cast iron that went into them.
