Re: Advice on additional equipment assuming Shopsmith as my initial setup

jbwoodshop, Some great advice has already been given. One of the best so far was garys suggesting you wait, do some projects then decide what you still need. Along those lines, I would at least think about the projects you have in mind and what you need to complete them. If the tools you have alread...

Re: My 10e

Stex10er, Your Model 10E being serial number ER10611 was likely made in late 1948 or possibly early 1949 and came from the Eastern Plant. The ER in the serial number designates it as coming from the Eastern Plant and E was also used first for Model 10's coming from the Eastern Plant. Early serial nu...

Re: BS table leveling plate.

I have a 1956 Bandsaw which has the screws that use a 5/32" Allen Wrench. I have restored and resold 3 other Bandsaws with Cast Iron Tables, but I do not recall which size Allen Wrench the screws used. They were (in order of restoration) a 1985, a 1978 and a 1984 of which I sold the 1984 just b...

Re: Repainting a 510

The picture below is the same Mark V before it was restored. Taking the extra time and effort can pay off in how it looks and runs when finished. I find that during a restoration having it completely apart makes it easier to find any problem parts that can then be replaced or repaired. Also, it is o...

Re: Drill Chuck attachment help

I think you will be happy with the Cushman Chuck you now have. Although not as "beefy" looking as the #14 Jacobs Chuck it still has the 1/2" capacity and since it goes directly on the Shopsmith Spindle it will be a lot less frustrating than trying to adapt the #14. Depending on when y...

Re: Foot activated ON/OFF switch - Good idea or safety hazard?

That would be my reasoning for going to a remote switch for the Dust Collection as opposed to using the Foot Switch I already have. Maybe one of these days I'll "switch". :D

Re: SPT’s What When and Where

For those of you who have followed my Model 10 What When and Where thread and my Mark 5 What When and Where thread you know I have a curiosity about anomalies. I found the following one regarding a Jointer. Model 505681-B serial number SS15354 made in Dayton OH would have been made March of 1980 as ...

Re: My 10e

Stex10er, First off welcome to the Shopsmith Forum. Nice Model 10E shorty. I believe this is the first Shorty Model 10 I have seen. I do like the way you added extra length having the belt past the headrest. A very creative way of mounting the Headrest to clear it out of the way to put your 10E into...

Re: BS Eccentric Mounting Tubes

JPG, Going back to a couple of your previous posts for clarification The SS site identifies the same part for BS and strip sander. ?? and WHY all this talk about shortening Strip Sander tubes, when the SS site states the tubes are for both the BS and Strip Sander. ??? SS site funky ? The Bandsaw use...

Re: New owner of a "other brands" Total Shop

That's what I wondered. The Mark V had a 230-volt motor option and I don't know if any "clones" did too.
