I doubt IF the motor is original, but, any ideas about who made something like this?   I didn't see any markings while I was there....more interested in the wood supplies...

 

Ring a bell out there?   I didn't think Walker-Turner made them like this...

Crafts, Dunlap or Companion.  Early 1940s.  Check this page.  Start at the bottom and work your way back as it is almost at the bottom.
