Re: New to me Mark V

That looks like the original power cord, switch and motor. Being that old I would recommend replacing the power cord with a new one that includes a ground. The ground can be attached to the motor thereby grounding the entire unit. You may consider replacing the switch while you have everything apart...

Re: Portable generators

Ed, I have a 5500 watt (7000 peak) 230 volt output gas generator I have had for at least 15 years now. It was used several days last winter for our power outage. It can be temperamental and since it is not used frequently that can add to problems. I had left some gas in it, my bad, and so getting it...

Re: Jointer Cleanup and Repair

theinrichs,

Do post a picture of your Jointer instead of using a link that may not be accessible. It will make it easier if you need help. The serial number 15554 for a Model 620 Greenie Jointer shows it was made in April 1954.

Re: Woodcraft coupon

You all received them for me. :D

I live less than a 20 minutes from that store. It is actually in Tigard OR a suburb SW of Portland.

Say hi as you come by Marc. ;)

Re: Jig Saw 505644 Manual

The link given by rpd above has the 1965 Manual for the Jig Saw and includes the most recent part numbers. Introduced in 1954, this Jig Saw had very few changes over the years. Early Jig Saws had straight mounting posts which later changed to the eccentric mounting posts sometime between May of 1980...

Re: New to me Mark V

ScotSunnergren, First let me add my welcome to the Shopsmith Forum and add to what has already been posted. Your Mark 5 was made in August 1954 and has the "A" Headstock. You already know that the logo plate on the back has no access hole under it. That is true for the "A" Headst...

Re: Looking for Ideas for Storing Shopsmith Tables?

My mind must be that cluttered type. It does take me time to organize my thoughts but at least my mind is not empty and neither is my desk. :D

JPG,

Thanks for the chuckle today.

Re: Preventing cat scratching new mission style recliners

Nice start Marc. I am curious as to why you chose the Bandsaw to cut the miters instead of the Table Saw function. In this case either works, just wondering. It is nice to have options for doing the work.

Re: First project with new/old Mv5

I have to add my dido to the nice comments above. It's great to be able to fix/add/repair something we so easily overlook.

Re: Hi there!

I don't believe there has been any change in the Way Tube Tie Bar over the years so any one should work as a replacement but greenie parts are still pretty easy to find. That way you may not need to paint it to match. Getting it painted to match the original Greenie color would be difficult and requ...
