    Default I need help identifying this press

    I got this from my wife's grandfather. He had passed away before we met hrr grandma didn't know anything about his tools or where he put any paperwork for them. I think it's an Atlas but not sure as the badge on the front is worn down. I also acquired a Atlas bench grinder and the badge on it looks very similar to the press. It's completely cast iron. It took me and my cousin to pick it up. We are not little guys. I'll update post with more pics when I get home.

    Looks like a Walker-Turner DP to me.

    Is the head casting and front belt guard one piece? I believe the Atlas belt guard is separate and bolts on. The W/T guard has a ridge or flange at the back which this one does not. I don't think Delta either and definately not Buffalo.

    The head and belt guard is one piece. After looking at the W/T DP pictures it does look more like those than the Atlas. The Badge on the head cast right below the belt guard is round with a red background and looks like silver lettering. Only reason I thought it might be an Atlas is because the motor is a Atlas motor but I know that's not a good way as any motor can be used.

    I think I may have figured out what it is. Canedy-Otto Royal. Not sure if these are any good but it did run smooth until the old belt cracked when I actually tried to drill a hole in some wood. Anyone have opinions on this brand?

    It's a Walker Turner. Have one (in well loved condition) like this one.

    Motor mount and top of the front pulley bonnet looks different than my W-T dp's. Have not heard of or seen a C-O, but it looks good enough that its worth fixing and using.

    I found a lot of history on my W-T on this site, there’s several similarities to mine however it is clearly not, hey maybe Earnest and William did prototype research and incorporated some of C-O design aspects into their DP?
    Look forward to pic when u finish it.

    We have some larger swing Royal drill press's in the shop with similar design features. The split casting quill lock, quill spring cover, tilting motor bracket, and front belt guard all look familiar to our machines.
