Re: Routing a moulding

An update to what I tried and how well it worked. Using a hand-held router was tried first. I temporarily attached the stock to the edge of a 2 x 6 so the router would have a large surface on which to ride.

Re: Motor hums but doesn't turn

Here is a link to one of several threads on this topic ... this one is about a GE 1-1/8 hp motor. In my case, I had to clean the contacts and do a little re-forming (bending) after accidentally dropping part of the disassembled motor. https://forum.shopsmith.com/viewtopic.php?t=17624&start=10 Fo...

Re: Routing a moulding

Thanks for all of the insights, suggestions, comments and questions. You have all given me several things to think about. I'll try to answer all questions in the order they were received: edma194 : I do have some wide stock I could try using a hand-held router on, and then rip the finished profile t...

Routing a moulding

Before I attempt something I have never tried before, I would like to hear if what I plan to make is feasible and can be done safely. The bit I have purchased is this: Rockler 2141.jpg The material to be used is cedar, or possibly white pine (1"x 2"). With Shopsmith in drill press mode, bi...

Re: Information needed

Welcome to the forum. You probably will not find much info directly from Shopsmith on the Mark 2 and older Mark 5. At the top of the Maintenance and Repair Forum, there are 4 threads called "stickies" because they always stay near the top. Each of them provide info valuable to anyone wanti...

Re: Changing headstock lock and dropping motor pan

Dropping the motor pan with the motor inside and still attached is how I have always removed the motor when I needed to. The V-belt comes off with a little wiggling once the motor and pan are dropped. Is the Shopsmith headstock still on the Shopsmith way tubes? If so, I can explain further how I do ...
