Restoring Beisemeyer Fence? - 6 replies

I am working on restoring a biesemeyer fence. I believe it is a commercial system. I picked it up from the same seller when I bought a second Walker Turner table saw to complete the restoration of the first one. The factory plyboard coverings on each side of the fence were in rough shape so I wanted to possibly use walnut on each side of the fen...

Walker Turner TA-1165 table saw - 17 replies

I had posted looking for advice to purchase the Walker Turner table saw or keep my Ryobi. I put the Ryobi up for sale and sold it. So I went and bought the Walker Turner last evening and brought it home. It’s a solid and heavy heavy saw. Even the fence probably weight 40 pounds. It will need a good bit to get it completely cleaned up. T...

Walker Turner table saw - 15 replies

I have been trying to get my shop setup. I originally had a 520 Shopsmith. I knew that I would never use it as a lathe, horizontal borer, etc so I sold it. Several months ago I purchase a Ryobi BT3000. It was hardly ever used and in excellent condition. After purchasing an old Walker Turner jointer that I have been working on getting cleaned ...

Removing tables from jointer - 7 replies

I have been working on getting the Walker Turner jointer cleaned up. I got the rust cleaned up from the tables and fenced. I removed the cutterhead and cleaned that up. New knives have been ordered and should be here next week. Inspecting it, I know there is years of sawdust caked up under both the indeed and outfeed tables. It takes a lot of...

Which planer? - 1 reply

I have been looking for a planer. I had a Ryobi AP-12 planer that I sold last week. I was never satisfied with its performance. I also went and looked at a Belsaw. It would have needed a lot of TLC to get it running, but the price was cheap for a Belsaw. After careful consideration, I ruled that one out. I don’t really have the space or...

Belsaw planer? - 5 replies

I have been looking for a new planer. Someone local has a Belsaw for sale. I have only recently heard about them. I currently have a Ryobi AP-12 benchtop planer. I haven’t had a chance to use it much. Mostly because I get a lot of snipe and washboard effect on the first 5” or so on boards. Should I try to get the Ryobi working right,...

Band saw identification - 0 replies

I am just starting to get into doing some woodworking. My first project will be a toy box for my son that turns 1 in a few months. I don’t have much of a disposable income at the moment to buy newer equipment. I found someone selling older 50’s Rockwell Delta band, table, and scroll saws. All are in working order, but not the gre...
