So im cleaning up in my garage shop a couple saturdays ago when a white SUV pulls right up to it and the guy inside tells me his daughter is my neighbor, he sees all my wood and wants to know if I’m interested in an old band saw?

He sends me some pictures and it looks prom...

Around the Shop #22: Walker Turner Lathe Restore. Fighting to the bitter end.

Restoring a Walker Turner BN730 Band Saw #2: progress

02-10-2011 05:35 AM by Camper | 10 comments »

I figured I would give you guys some updates. Things are coming together pretty well. After disassembly and cleaning I tackled the repairs to the wheel covers with some fiber mesh reinforced with a wire grid and JB weld. The wheels had some missing sections where either the PO cut parts out or the blade had taken a slice out of them. For example: here is the mesh I used here it is on the wheel cover and the repair after a few coats of JB weld and sanding. The wire grid all...
