Re: SPT’s What When and Where

Belt Sander The Belt Sander was introduced in 1955 in Shopsmith Shavings No. 10. It was originally Model 640. As with other SPT’s it was first a Magna tool. It had Magna Markings with a Shopsmith Inc. sticker on the Outer Frame into the 1980’s. The main change since the Belt Sanders introduction in...

Re: I love my 10ER, but…

If you are interested and didn't know yet the Mark 5 S/N 309828 was made in October 1955 and is interesting because it has the "B" Headstock which changed that month but information had that at S/N 312507. Your Jointer Model 620 S/N 17794 was made in June 1954. The Jointer and Belt Sander ...

The picture above is over 6 years old and the collection of Shopsmith I have kept has grown since then. The two on the left have since been sold but I have more of them now. :D

Re: I love my 10ER, but…

Marc,

An extremely nice gift from MickyD. Try and get your wife involved in some projects.

The Magna Model 4E Jointer is for the Model 10E and 10ER. It uses a special headrest and bracket to mount it plus additional parts specific to it. I hope it is with it.

Re: 10e owner, new to forum, what to do with the unit

John's is a great example of turning it into a dedicated Drill Press and more like I was referring to. It takes up less floor space. Note that his has the Speed Changer and a couple additions with the attached dust collection tube and a an original gooseneck lamp to light the workspace. If you want ...

Re: 10e owner, new to forum, what to do with the unit

Andy, If you can spare 10 square feet of floor space in your shop I say keep it. Not only is it still a useful tool but likely has some sentimental value being handed down in the family. Depending on which accessories you have with it, it can add additional value to your shop. If you have a Speed Ch...

Re: Prem Caster upgrade fail

The stem on the 3" wheel casters is 1-3/8" long while the stem on the 2" wheel casters is 1-5/8" long. A longer stem would not work well in the retractable caster assembly's sleeve since it would leave the excess stem below the bottom of the sleeve adding height to the assembly. ...

Re: Shopsmith Mark 5 What When and Where

Today I was reminded of something I have talked about before. Reading my email for the Shopsmith specials something again caught my eye. In the listing for the Double Tilt Upgrade there are two notes for buyers. They read as follows Note: For Mark V models 505, 510 and 520 only -- The Mark V Model 5...

Re: Saw guard. For. 10er. Seattle Washington. To far for me

Okay guys, It was first for sale on CL and is now on ebay. I didn't see the Lower Blade Guard when it was on CL. It has been bid on by one of us. I hope to go up to Seattle Monday to pick it up.

Re: Prem Caster upgrade fail

First I would like to make sure we are talking about the same wheels. Below shows the Shopsmith Premium Upgrade Casters mounted. _ premium casters on mark SS.jpg _ Is this the wheels you have? I don't know of a "shelf life" for the casters. I have one set I put on my Mark about 5 years ago...
