    Default Walker Turner Drill Press

    I have an old Walker Turner drill press which I believe to be 20" model the only ID on it is a serial number 2 644 the table is 14" x 18".
    Can anyone help to identify the model or year it was manufactured. It is a heavy duty floor standing drill press and weights 300 to 500 pounds.

    Look on under side of table, I've seen model number in the castings of some of the smaller machines. Would love to find a big one like that.

    You will probably get a better response at the Old Wood Working Machines or Vintage Machinery sites. Your same “serial number” was used on a lot of WT drill presses…including mine…

    I think that translates to 1944. W-T didn't produce a 20" drill until the model 1100 around 1944. The badge should say Walker-Turner Company Inc Plainfield NJ. Around 1948 Kearney & Trecker purchased W-T and the badges changed to Walker-Turner Division Kearney & Trecker Plainfield NJ. Then around 1956 W-T was sold again to Rockwell and lived on a bit long as Walker-Turner Division, Rockwell Manufacturing Co
