Re: Some sad news...

It makes one appreciate the longevity of shopsmith even more!
I turned away from PC a while ago when they could not provide a replacement part for a fairly new miter saw.

Re: Two Bearing Quill

Re: Two Bearing Quill

I have the same problem. I have a two-bearing / 1 piece spindle. I removed the inner (lower) bearing but when trying to press off the outer (upper) bearing over the splines, discovered that the inner diameter of the inner race is smaller than the outer diameter of the splines. That MUST be a collar...

Re: Recurring rust on bandsaw table

Also NC here. Shopsmith in humid garage. Agreed paste wax helps, but after a few months cast iron tables and steel way tubes would have early oxidation. My solution? Dehumidifier set to 55%. That along with JPW totally stopped the issue. http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PjFHWwzy3MY/UkDDY4yy4oI/AAAA...

Re: Free Flexible Shaft Box

While not Shopsmith, this is my personal favorite flexible shaft tool. 29 bucks, is very handy for me.

Re: Lathe Chucks

I bought the G3 shopsmith bundle from amazon. Works great, very pleased. Good price too!
