USPTO = U.S. Patent Office . Images of the actual patent can be viewed on the U.S. Patent Office web site but a special TIFF viewer must be installed with your browser in order properly work. More information on how to configure your computer to view these patents can be found at TIFF image Viewers for Patent Images.
DATAMP = Directory of American Tool And Machinery Patents . A sister site to VintageMachinery.org with information on patents related to machinery and tools. A much easier user interface than the USPTO's for finding information on machinery patents.

1,930,319 Oct. 10, 1933 Friction clutch William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This is a patent for a clutch that was made and sold by Walker-Turner.
D91,094 Nov. 21, 1933 Design for a head casting for a drill press William Brewer Turner East Orange, NJ
1,956,430 Apr. 24, 1934 Reversing switch William B. Turner East Orange, NJ
1,996,825 Apr. 09, 1935 Tiltable table support for tablesaws, etc. William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent date was seen on a Walker-Turner 16-inch metal cutting bandsaw, model number MBN1105.
2,008,673 Jul. 23, 1935 Power-driven tool William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent is for under-table mechanicals of a small tablesaw. The design was used on the Walker-Turner TA-925 tablesaw and other similar models.
2,010,882 Aug. 13, 1935 Self-indexing miter gauge William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This miter gauge was supplied with Walker-Turner's 10-inch bench saws and tilting-arbor saws, and probably others as well.
2,054,518 Sep. 15, 1936 Hold-down guard for jointers William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ Seen on Walker-Turner 6-inch jointer, model 6520-1.
2,072,646 Mar. 02, 1937 Drill press spindle drive and mounting William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent number has been seen on both Walker-Turner and Rockwell drill presses.
2,085,131 Jun. 29, 1937 Jointer fence Herbert E. Tautz Milwaukee, WI This end-locking mechanism for a jointer fence was used by Delta on their 6-inch jointer, and was apparently also used by Walker-Turner, because the patent number is listed in a Walker-Turner jointer manual.
2,089,808 Aug. 10, 1937 Sanding machine William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent was used on Walker-Turner's SM900 belt and disc surfacer.
2,116,122 May. 03, 1938 Machine tool William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This invention relates to "removable routing assemblies and improvements in the mounting of routing machine spindles."
2,116,123 May. 03, 1938 Jigsaw William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent "has for a primary object to render available a machine tool which includes the combined functions of a number of cooperating machines and which may be readily converted from one type of machine to another with the ease and rapidity essential in certain arts. In the production of printing plates, for example, an operator frequently is obliged to rout out an area or section from the top of a combined wood and metal plate and then trim off or remove a full section of the plate. Heretofore, operations of that character required two machines, one for sawing and one for routing and in consequence a great amount of time was consumed in moving the work from one machine to another. With the aid of the present invention, however, routing and sawing, and analogous operations may be performed upon the one machine without idle or wasted time between operations."
The original application was divided into two, and this patent's companion is patent 2,116,122.
2,131,492 Sep. 27, 1938 Tilting arbor table saw William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ "This present invention relates to power saw machines and particularly to an improved means for adjusting the relation between the saw and the work supporting surface of the table to obtain proper alignment, depth of cut, and angle of cut."
This invention was subsequently improved in patent 2,261,696.
2,153,502 Apr. 04, 1939 Apparatus for bench grinding long blades William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ
2,165,002 Jul. 04, 1939 Tensioning means for running jigsaw William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ Seen on W-T 24-inch Driver Line scrollsaw.
2,191,410 Feb. 20, 1940 Jigsaw blade support and work hold-down William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ See also patent 2,116,123.
391,285 Sep. 10, 1940 Inertia eliminator William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent number is reported on the motor-and-gearing housing of a Walker-Turner radial arm saw. See also U.S. patent 2,236,854.
2,236,854 Apr. 01, 1941 Inertia eliminator William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ This patent number is reported on the motor-and-gearing housing of a Walker-Turner radial arm saw.
"This device relates to high speed power transmission and particularly to a device for preventing the breaking of gears incident to a sudden accidental stopping of the driven part. In motor driven geared saws the condition that the present invention undertakes to meet is well illustrated, for in the operation of such machines, all of the factors that heretofore resulted in the breaking of gears in the drive between the saw mandrel and the motor are present. When sawing through a relatively wide plank, for example, the operator holds the plank against the mitre gauge at one side of the line of cut and endeavors to hold and guide that portion of the plank on the other side of the line of cut, freehand, After the saw is part way through the plank, certain very definite forces are released in the plank and the opposed end portions thereof tend to close upon and stop the same."
A Walker-Turner radial saw motor housing lists three patent numbers: this one, Canadian patent 391,285, and British patent 527,508.
2,261,696 Nov. 04, 1941 Tilting saw William Ferdinand Ocenasek Plainfield, NJ "This present invention relates to motor driven tilting arbor saws and concerns more particularly improvements in adjustable saw tables of the character disclosed in my prior patent 2,131,492."
