Rebuilt Walker Turner bandsaw

This is an old Walker Turner BS that I picked up in Tampa for 200 bucks,everything works great,bearings and all in great shape,but it only had an 8" resaw height,and I raised it to 12".I just got the new tires for it today and will install them tomorrow, and it will be ready to use.

Walker turner BS restored pics

Finally got the pics posted,I had to cut the arm off and take two 1/4 x 4" steel plates and make a riser.I had to bend that one piece with a hammer an NO heat.It runs great,it has a 3/4 hp motor,but I just found a 1 1/2 Hp 220 on NC WW forum for a total price of $75.00 shipped.That gives me about $300.00 in it.Everything was sanded an repainted.Not the prettiest mach,but it runs great and can't wait to get that 220 1 1/2 motor on it.It will actually resaw a 13" board.
