I can't find a source for a zero clearance insert for a Walker-Turner bandsaw. Anyone know where I could get one?
I am showing the Magfence because I just got it and I love it.

What model is it? Year? Walker-Turner made bandsaws in the early 1920's. A lot of Rockwell bandsaws are actually Walker-Turner bandsaws.

Any which way, you might be better off making your own

I forgot to say it measures 2" diameter. 16" model.
I don't know how to make one.
Just cut a circle that's 2 inches round and 3/32 thick. You can use whatever material you want, wood, metal, high density plastic etc. Go to Home Depot and grab some melamine or if you have a Rockler or Woodcraft nearby grab some HDP

If you're worried about the insert having a lip to hold it down, I've been using a home made insert for 3 years now with no lip. Works great. Easier to get out too!

don't do it dave! Don't send him to woodturnerscatalog! He is sure to end up spending hundreds of dollars on stuff!
I know what you mean. Takes a lot of control when I visit Craft Supply, Packard Woodworks, Lee Valley etc. Must be the force. :laughing:

Ughh I feel ya. Everytime I need to buy something there I think "I should buy more to justify shipping/wait" then I end up spending $100 when I only needed some sandpaper.

Thanks to both for the advice. It only cost me $3.30 for the nylon blank. ($7.00 postage)
