Re: SPEED INCREASER

I changed over to the PowerPro years ago. I have a Speed Increaser sitting in the box that I recall using twice. It worked well when I used it. If you would like to send me a PM, I will dust off the box and inventory that all the parts are there . I would enjoy someone using this tool instead of col...

It has been over a year since asking the question if anyone had decided to try the Shelix conversion for the SS Planer. I believe one person replied having done the conversion. Question now being after a years worth of use / testing, what insights could you provide for anyone still contemplation suc...

Re: Powerpro Competitor

I just finished watching the latest YouTube posting for the "DIGITALPLUS" the new name for the PowerPro alternate. This is a basic introduction to do a DYI conversion like the Shopsmith DVD. I used the SS DVD, and printed step by step instructions to completed my conversion to PowerPro 3 o...

The "For The Love Of Wood" web site has a very interesting Powerpro alternative!

Re: Planer Cutterhead Specs

I contacted Shelixheads requesting the three available spec sheets. I received them within minutes of clicking the send button! Outstanding customer service. Upon reviewing them I realized I am a woodworker and not a machinist, and not capable of making the exact measurements needed. I will be sendi...

Planer Cutterhead Specs

Hoping there is someone out there who might know if the specs on the SS Thickness Planer have remained the same during their 30 yr plus history. This would be helpful when contemplating a SHELIX conversion. As usual emailing Shopsmith produces no response!

Re: Joint-Matic

I also have a Joint-Matic that was barely if ever used. I have all the original accessories available for it, some in their original boxes, plus a few extra parts. If anyone is interested in one, at the noted Lumberjocks price, please contact me.

Pet Peeve

I would be interested to know if anyone has submitted a question to the "Contact Us " portion of the Shopsmith site? I have! I can recall at least four attempts without ever receiving a reply. Their one business day reply is a total lie. I had a question regarding a retro fit item and brok...

Shopsmith Shelix Conversion?

I watched a number of YouTube videos showing the process of replacing the Dewalt 735 planer knives with the Shelix helical cutter heads. Just wondering if anyone has spent the $700 to upgrade their Shopsmith planer.
