Re: Hello Shopsmith World

No, the lathe drive is just slid onto the arbor and clamped with a set screw onto the threads. The lathe drive doesn't fit on the spindle, and it looks like the arbor's threads were sacrificed at some point in the past as a workaround.

Re: Hello Shopsmith World

And no, I don't know if any Williamses on the west coast. The most famous Williams I know of was one of my grandfathers who was the PE coach at the local school, so everyone in town ages 50-80 remembers him.

Also, a huge word of thank for the people that saved and scanned all those manuals and catalogs. Those were immensely useful in figuring this beast out.

Re: Hello Shopsmith World

Hi there everyone! I posted here almost three years ago with photos of my inherited machine. With the exception of the replacement of the power switch that I broke during reassembly, it's done. I did a 100% teardown, every nut and bolt. I de-greased, de-rusted, stripped, painted, and polished it all...

Re: Hello Shopsmith World

I think you're totally correct. It appears to be a drill operated saw attachment. I had no idea what it was until you pointed that out. I don't think it has anything to do with the shopsmith, maybe just ended up in the box of pieces. The only marking is "Bull Tools". Also found this speed ...

Hello Shopsmith World

Hi there! I inherited a 10ER this spring, and thought I'd share. I've done a fair bit of lurking around here over the past few months to see what in the world I now own and how to polish it up.
