Re: New to Me Model 10E Serial Number 1077

Doing some looking back today and noticed my last post here was again nearly a year and a half ago. I did change the motor on 1077 (in back) to its original A. O. Smith 1/2 HP Motor which matches the one show here on 1076 (in front) in the picture below. This picture was taken less than a month afte...

Re: Returning the E-clip to bandsaw

I have had the E Clip or Retaining Ring on older Magna/Shopsmith Bandsaws off many times. As suggested already there may be one of several reasons you are not able to get the E Clip back on. First I would check the E Clip without the Upper Wheel in place to see if the E Clip may be too wide for the ...

Re: Updated Sliding Table

For those who may have missed it in the other thread "Shopsmith Crosscut Sled" here is the Q and A Scott Markwood posted. Hopefully this clears things up. It appears they used Dusty's pictures. Someone oops :o

Re: Heads Up - Bargain 'available'

Although it is missing some Mark 2 specific parts (at least not shown in the pictures) it would be a great start for someone wanting to do a Mark 2 restoration. One big plus is it has the Mark 2 Retractable Casters and looks to be in pretty good condition already.

Re: How to lubricate when there are no holes for lubrication.

JPG,

Not a pesky detail at all. It is an important detail and something I should have remembered to mention in my post.

Re: charlese

Steve,

Thank you for sharing this with us and please add my condolences on your family's loss.

As JPG already said about selling his tools the best would be locally like craigslist and/or similar. If you need help identifying items, we would surely be able to help with that.

Re: How to lubricate when there are no holes for lubrication.

SplintersNmeoveralls, Good information from the posts already made on how to lubricate a Shopsmith Mark 5/V. This may not apply to Shopsmith Clones. As David said the Sheaves on both the Motor Shaft and Idler Shaft can be lubricated without having the holes to put the oil directly into. Not the most...
