SS Planer Pro

I'm uncertain whether the rules of this discussion board permit communication about SS pieces of equipment for sale, but here goes. If I'm offending the rules, pardon. I recently had the good fortune offer my SS overhead rig for sale on this site and a nice SS guy nearby and I completed the transact...

Re: Overarm Pin Router

I have a SS overarm pin router package that I am going to sell. I am assembling the components right now since they have been stored in a storage box, but I believe I have everything including the router table. I suppose I used the overarm router a dozen or so times, but it never quit fit into my wo...

Re: Timeliness of Shopsmith

Everyone, I would like to close out this discussion with the good news that I took delivery this week on my long-awaited PowerPro headstock. I ordered it last June, some 9 months or so ago. I installed the new headstock and am pleased with its performance. Among other qualities, it is quiet. Anyway,...

Re: Timeliness of Shopsmith

Everyone, In case any one is interested in my continued effort to purchase and have delivered a PowerPro headstock, I called again today (Friday March 4) and am now told on the phone that Shopsmith does not have any PowerPro headstocks in inventory. They are expecting some in the future, perhaps 2 w...

Re: Timeliness of Shopsmith

Thanks everyone. I did not get into all of the details, but I have checked with them with phone calls during the wait and have been assured that it was coming soon. The problem is that these appear to be empty promises. Moving the issue up the ladder makes sense. Does anyone have a suggestion who to...

Timeliness of Shopsmith

I have a concern about the timeliness of Shopsmith in fulfilling orders. Last June (2021), I ordered a PowerPro headstock. Here it is towards the end of February 2022 and I still do not have it. It seems to be taking too long with 9-10 months. Shopsmith drew on my credit card in December. After I sa...

Re: Accessory storage

Thanks for this fabulous idea on storage of the SPTs. I'm moving from a 1 1/2 garage sized shop to a single car garage size and need to tighten up on space. This idea does it, though I recognize the issue of bending over. Nevertheless, I am grateful for your posting.

Re: router table tight fit

Remounting extension table seems to help a bit. I believe this can make it work, but the tolerances are tight, but manageable.

Thanks everyone for the assistance.

What is the purpose in those square hubs anyway?

Re: router table tight fit

As I review my question and everyone's answers and additional questions, I begin to wonder if I would not be better off using my router table at the end, with the telescoping legs for stability, instead of trying to fit the router table between the main table and the fixed extension table. One advan...
