I purchased this via an online auction in Harrisburgh,Pa without realizing the size and weight. Another member (Bob Marshall) was kind enough to pick it up and potter it until I could get down there for it. I was attracted to it because of the power feed. The machine has a 3 MT spindle with a 5 speed power down feed. It has a WT head badge and a Rockwell serial plate. I believe it is the basic WT design manufactured by Rockwell after their take over of Walker Turner. The power feed is badged Rockwell. It came with a Commander multi spindle drill head which I am not using but can't find anybody interested in it so that currently sits in the rat hole. it is a 1-1/2 HP 3 phase machine being run from a VFD.
