Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

Thanks. I did find one listed on eBay. I'm going to see if the part that broke off can possibly be riveted back on. It happened right before we were leaving. Those gear teeth are avail on ebay. Look for 'shopsmith' parts and you'll find it if you want to replace the section. The gear rack on the way...

Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

Well, it now goes both forward and reverse. I have a video, but can't seem to attach it. Found the correct drill chuck and key. Got the quill working pretty smoothy. Belts are in good condition. Not sure that everything in pictures 3 and 4 goes with it. We just started putting things aside and will ...

Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

Wow! Three? I've noticed that some of the Mark V's are listed for more. It only hums in reverse. So, JPG just said to tweak the switch to see if that helps. I'd noticed others just have legs and not the base the one we have has. Yup, we're definitely a lengthy drive from Texas. Thanks for your reply...

Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

I've been looking at both sites for comparisons. Thanks! Also look at Craigslist and Facebook Market Place for Shopsmith and Shop Smith, both spellings, to see what the average price is in your area. Prices vary a lot depending on what is available and how many accessories come with the machine. Jus...

Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

We'll see if we can find the rip fence. We've been looking for anything that looks like it might go with it. Thanks for the suggestion about the speed and your response! Looks like the plastic speed adj cam is good. That's a plus. I don't see the rip fence. That would be a minus because only a mark ...

Sorry, too far for me. I want a Mark VII, but you're around 1200 miles away.

Re: looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

I figured it's missing some things. Anything specific you can point out? Hoping we can find a few of the missing items this weekend. Going to see if we can tweak the switch as you mentioned. The one person who inquired wants me to come up with a price. I asked him what he would offer, but no go. App...

looking for help pricing a Mark VII to sell

I have a Shopsmith Mark VII that we inherited from my mom's husband. We're trying to clear out my mom's garage within a couple of weeks so we can list the house and looking to sell the Mark VII. Can anyone tell from the pictures what might be a fair asking price or a good place to start? The serial ...
