Default Walker Turner 6" Jointer


My father picked this up as a repair project in the 1950's and never got around to completing the job. It's a 6-inch, 3-blade jointer. When Rockwell absorbed Walker Turner, it became the jointer in the Homecraft line. Later, branded as a Delta product, it appears as the 37-200 model.

The original motor has been replaced a Montgomery Ward (Powr Kraft) 1-hp unit with a cooling air filter. The motor works and the bearings/guides are good. The in and out feed tables are flat and parallel. The primary flaw is a missing fence miter and clamp. In addition, I think the motor drive pulley is too small (the cutter head speed seems slow).

In any case, I'm asking $150, but open to offers. If my price is out of line, tell me.

Pick-up only. Located between Lock Haven and Bellefonte, PA on PA Route 150.

Thanks for posting that. I love old iron. Back in tose days they weren't afraid to use cast iron and they were rock solid.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I have that same planner and I love it. I think it is older than me, but runs better than me.
