Hi, new to the forum but have been reading yalls advice for a lil while now as a guest and definitely appreciate the discussion and knowledge. Started woodworking lil over a year ago and it’s become my life, saved my life in many ways. Currently have early 90s craftsman belt driven cast iron table saw. Been needing an upgrade, but money’s tight. Enter the Walker-Turner 10” table saw. Found on fb for 140. Went tested it out, little rust on table top, blade elevation was difficult but worked, tilt worked fine. Runs sooo smooth! One owner, I believe. Needs cleaning, didnt see anything too crazy wrong with it. Got it home to find a pulley wheel was broke. Does anyone know about where I can find a pulley wheel for a 1180 Walker Turner 10” table saw? Any advice would be great appreciated!

Do I see 3 belts on that thing? What size motor is it? If it’s less than 5 hp, I can’t see why it would need a 3-belt drive. Unless a PO maybe had a set of triple pulleys and just threw them on there. If I’m seeing right and that is the case, I’d just leave that third belt off and see if you have any issues.

I’d definitely run that bad boy with just the two belts. Or even just one for that matter…

And yeah it ran fine when I tested it bf buying it, just saw the damage pulley when I got home which kind of threw me off, because to a person that is just now starting to learn about how machines like these work, you would think that that would cause problems? Idk. There’s a problem with the blade elevation also. Would that be a result of the pulley wheel?

I wouldn’t think so Duke but I’m not familiar with that saw. Maybe Tony can weigh in.

As far as the belts go, the more power you’re trying to transmit, the more belts you may need as a kind of rule of thumb. However, with today’s technology and materials, you have to have a pretty big machine and pretty harsh job before you need 3 belts. I really don’t have any idea why they put 3 belts on that table saw to begin with unless they had a big, industrial saw with a lot more horses and wanted to keep commonality of parts across the product line. But, I feel sure you don’t need but one in reality. If you somehow manage to lock up the arbor while the motor keeps spinning, that would tell you the belt is slipping and you need more belts. But, even 5 hp, 12-14” table saws only use single belts most of the time.

the only thing I can see from that picture is caked on sawdust unless the pulley worked its way off the shaft a little then that would be dragging try cleaning it real good then put on a good dry lube I think I use CRC because the whole motor rides up and down so it will not be too easy to crank up how is it going down ? hope this helps you out :<)))

I’ve got a spare set for motor and for arbor for that saw… I’m not sure if it’s 100% tight to the shaft or not, it may be a little wallowed out.

I’ve got two of these saws, what’s the issue with the elevation? If it’s just tight and difficult to move, there are pressure plates with gib screws that control the tension of the mechanism, or this could just be all gunked up with sawdust and grease packed in, one of mine was. Or, there’s (supposed to be) a locking knob in the center of the elevation wheel that locks the hight in, make sure that’s not tight, or possibly could be stuck

And for what it’s worth, I love this saw, once tuned up. For a while I thought I wanted a uni-saw, but thought they were too big, and ended up finding one of these WT 1180B saws, and have been really happy with it. As it turns out, these saws are actually bigger than unisaws, so that part didn’t work out for me lol

I bought and installed a shark guard on it with dust port, and have been quite happy with mine.

Looks like yours is in the configuration with the table extension in front of the blade, for a lot of infeed space. You’re also able to have that flipeped over to the back for more outfeed space. Did it come with a fence?

Yep, came with fence and miter gauge. One of the reasons I liked it so much when I saw it in person, the fence it alot more accurate than my 90s craftman. Which the model I got isn’t bad at all, but the fence is a joke. Miter gauge came with it too. Will post more pics shortly, just now disassembling crafts and pulling WT into shop. Now the real fun begins! And yep got some dry lubricant and rust removal things ready so here I go. Will post more soon , thanks yall for the help

Ok, so I’m cleaning up the inside of this thing now, and the on belt that has fell off the busted pulley wheel still hangs around the drive. Should I just cut it off? Dont want to disassemble atm , especially if I dont have to and it will run fine with 2 belts. Also, 45° turns awesome, and blade elevation now is good, was just dust and I think I had the lock on when I tried before lol. Woopz
