Re: 10er Belt sizes

rbenstead, As has already been pointed out the original Speed Changer belts were 22 1/2 and 25 1/2. That would be size 4L225 and 4L255 belts. Size 4L220 and 4L250 belts are the general substitutes. This is if you have the recommended 1/2 HP motor from A. O. Smith or a similar size motor. Different m...

Re: What happened to the Gas Spring Table Raiser?

Ed, I have seen the page you linked in the past but never considered getting one. I don't find it that difficult to adjust the Carriage/Table once I am in Drill Press position if needed. I setup the Headstock and Carriage/Table position before raising it into Drill Press position. Besides I usually ...

Re: Mark V Master Craftsman

I don't know what may be near your location but near me the only thing I can think of would be a High School or Community College teaching woodworking. That is if they would even accept such a donation.

Re: Hello from Michigan

Tom, The 6" Belt Sander will work the same as the Bandsaw and other Special Purpose Tools (SPT's) on the Mark VII just as it would on a Mark V. Do remember most SPT's are made to run only in the forward direction powered by the Headstock. With the 6" Belt Sander you can have a very versati...

Re: Hello from Michigan

Tom, I put the information about the manuals for other new owners who may read this to inform them. I have done that several times in threads. When I first started restoring Shopsmith Model 10's I bought the packet from Shopsmith they sell with information and manuals. I found out after that the inf...

Re: I'm doing a Power Pro Self Upgrade

The only reason I can think of offhand for the Motor Pan (cover) not going on would be not repositioning the power cord hole. Unlike the conventional Headstock where the motor is mounted to the Motor Pan the Power Pro Motor is mounted to the Headstock casting itself. As Ed said, for the belt problem...

Re: Hello from Michigan

MichiganTom, Unfortunately, the copies of the manual you purchased on ebay are not from Everett but someone profiting from Everett's work. Sadly, it is difficult to impossible to stop sellers like this. For anyone needing Manuals for Shopsmith tools look at other resources first and don't buy copies...

Re: Mark V Upper and Lower Blade Guard

The Upper and Lower Saw Blade Guard for the Mark V 505/510, 520 and Mark 7 & 4 is different than the Saw Guards made for the original Mark 5/V aka 500 Table and the Mark VII from the 1960's. The Upper Guard for the 505/510 & 520 attaches through the slot in the Table Insert as opposed to att...
