Walker Turner Wood Lather - Frozen

After my Dad passed away, I inheretd his shop full of beautiful old tools. From old Bailey planes to a great old Walker Turner lathe. As it is, I can't keep these tools, as much as I'd really love to. I was preparing to sell the lathe but discovered it has frozen up (belt won't drive the spindle. Anyone out there with some sage advice? Thanx for listening, Charles Young, Gainesville, Florida

Frozen Walker Turner Wood Lathe
by: Nick J

Hi,
I recently purchased an old bed for Walker-turner lathe which has a gap,not a square piece of metal
like yours.I had to disassemble the head stock to
remove v-belts.Which i did by removing cover plates from roller bearings and hex stop screw which keeps head bearing in place(look for a 6mm hole on top of cover)Slightly banging on the head stock sleeve I displaced bearings,not necessary to take out the axle.The hole for back bearing is large enough to remove the belt.Before all this use WD-40 spray to unfreeze the bearings and also heat air gun to enlarge the bearings holes.To have good wrenches and ratchet set is essential. Always put some flattened copper tube under hammer to avoid damage to axle
