Re: Facebook Marketplace ad

It's great that this 510 will finally get a chance to make sawdust! And if the numbers being thrown around are even close, WOW, what a deal! I've seen 1 or 2 NIB Shopsmiths on my local Craigs List over the years. They definitely do exist -- impulse purchases at demos, I imagine, by folks who never g...

Re: A view on alignment of the shopsmith.

. . . He mentioned using the set screw in back side of left side way tube foundation. This may explain a lot of alignment problems. https://youtu.be/w_SS67qincs AMEN!!!!!!! He actually used the twist word! He also revealed a simple way to check. Spoken, not demonstrated. Wait, are you now a set scr...

Re: Hawk Saturday, well this one anyway

I agree it is probably a Cooper's Hawk. About the size of a crow. If it were much smaller, say blue jay sized, then a sharp-shinned hawk.

Re: Why do I need a 10 position Quick-Index Quill Feed?

I have the Shopsmith 10 position quick release and opted to get the spare hub so there's a hub on both sides of the head stock. With two hubs you can quick release and move the handle not only between positions but between sides. 10 positions is handy because you never need to remove it entirely. If...

Re: Table Alignment (Maybe)

It's certainly an intriguing approach. How are the dial indicators calibrated to ensure that the roughly 0.002 difference between the two dial indicators is legit?

Re: DIY Mounting Base?

I like that design, Dennis! I use dollies for all my SPTs but they aren't that elegant!

Re: Fox in my back yard, the video

Fantastic! I am lucky to somewhat regularly see foxes in my neighborhood and even in my front yard and occasionally in the back yard. Although I have seen them in daylight it is even more frequent after a snowfall to see their prints on my front walk and driveway.

Re: table alignment

Plus one on drilling. Made my table much easier to align and I can see no downside to it.
