36" Walker Turner Wood Lathe
My son gave me a Walker Turner 36"wood lathe that he got at a yard sale near Madison WI. I used it to turn some spindle legs. I was not pleased with the results because the lathe is a little out of round. Probably needs new roller bearings. My guess is that this lathe come from an Industrial Arts shop at a high school in the Milwaukee or Madison area.
I would like to restore it but don't know where to get parts.
