Original Toy Motor Embossed WM. P. Walter's Sons Philadelphia
Very high quality, solid cast iron frame with the base embossed "WM. P. Walter's Sons Philadelphia. WM. P. Walters was more of a retailer than producer. davistownmuseum.org makes reference to an undated catalog from W.M. Walters containing "Model Engines". W.M. Walters or WM. P. Walters appears to have been in the tool/workshop business and why not offer a crossover into some toys for the kids to be like dad. I love the "openness" of this motor. motor on low dc voltage and didn't get anything. It appears internally to have never been touched....could be a good contact cleaning on the commutator/brushes resolves the running issue.
