    The three art deco style vertical stripes evokes the looks of some early Beaver machines.

      Cool thank you. It’s looks like maybe there was some type of badge in the middle at some point but maybe it was painted over.

        I am quite certain it is a Walker Turner

          Thanks al. Here is a link that seems to be the one. 1930’s ish. Really cool unit. Now I guess the big question, what is something like this worth?

            I does indeed have the cool factor covered. I do not have first hand knowledge of this saw,I did however have a 6” walker turner jointer at one point,and it was a very well made machine.
            if it was me,I would definitely have a look,ensure it has a good backbone,bolt on stuff like bearings,electrical etc can be upgraded but some vintage parts are simply un replaceable.having said that ,anything that has survived since the thirties and is still serviceable will most likely outlive you.
            my two cents

                  One more comment,although Jérôme is likely correct that it is a 14”saw,it is also possible it is a 16”.
                  resaw is quite limited ,do not know if a riser block is possible

                    Ya I also noticed that it has that unique little step up around the guide and that allows it to go up a bit further than normal. I suppose I would have to measure it to be sure what model it is.

                      Did anybody saw the way the switch is instal on the left side of the machine, it is just beside the saw blade. Dangerus way to place it.

                        Not uncommon or dangerous unless the guard is missing.
                        Most bandsaws have the switch in this spot. Mine doesn’t but it was built before electric motors were common - line shaft driven.
