    About

    The drill press is a multi speed floor model drillpress. It was manufactured by Walker-Turner. In 1956 Kearney & Trecker sold Walker-Turner to Rockwell Manufacturing Co. In 1957 Rockwell ceased production in Plainfield and closed all former Walker-Turner facilities. Because this drillpress has both a Walker-Turner and a Rockwell logo on it, it must have been manufactured between 1956 and 1958.
