Walker-Turner 25" drill press- Model 900 made approx 1940
by Gary T.
(East Bay, CA)
My dad got this in Denver just after WWII started. He was told it was the last one which could go to the civilian market. From then on they would go to defense related companies. Besides my our family's projects, many cub scouts learned shop safety as well as drilling on it.
My mom brought it to me in No. Calif. in 1975. It needs replacement bearings and I'm told Walker Turner had them made special for their tools, but that there may be a company which installs them located in New England. Does anyone have any information?
Thanks in advance.
