Re: Bridge city tools

Thanks for the notification. I want to order the gold one before it goes off sale! If you want planning perfection you must use gold tools. It insures cuts to .00003” tolerances plus it reduces effort by nearly 50% and the extra weight reduces skipping. Plus it gives you real reason to sob when you ...

Re: A view on alignment of the shopsmith.

Hey in the “my growth rings” YouTube video he went over setting up the lathe part of the SS. He said it was the most important part of the SS set up. 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_SS67q...

Re: 2020 Rating

It was a matter of prospective, if you were not effected then 2020 was not so bad, but if you lost a loved one to Covid or dealt with the disease yourself it was pretty awful. Personally I did not enjoy 2020. I lost a brother to the disease, I watched my daughter a Hospice nurse agonize over insurin...

Re: 99 Reasons You Should Never Buy a Shopsmith & 1 Reason Why You Should!

Its funny- I had come across that bear recently while looking at something unrelated to Shopsmith. I couldn't focus on the content because that stupid bear and its poorly done voice-over matching kept drawing my attention. I concluded then that I would avoid the bear in the future. Now, I have yet ...

New Shopsmith specific YouTube program

I am sure many will object to the video that is expected but toward the end he shows some interesting ideas on modifying the SS.

Re: Today's nature video

These are nice! thank you I had a walk-about lately; my picture is modest. But as a woodworker it's fascinating. The town has a number of buckled-up sidewalk slabs that have been "beveled down" by a tool or method I don't yet know. Looks like something done with a precision router-sled or...
