Re: Model 10E for sale

I forgot to mention before there is a person near you who buys Shopsmiths to disassemble and sell the parts on eBay. If you wish to keep it as a complete working unit you will want to sell it to someone looking to restore or use it as is. Your other option as Dick is speaking to would be to keep it...

Shopsmith 10E Shaper Fence?

Re: Facebook Shopsmith Sites

First, thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, I will not be going there. This forum is about as close as I am ever going to get (again) to social media. I really regret that Shopsmith has not chosen to utilize this forum as a portal into that sort of data. That said, I did find this (that apparent...

Re: Model 10ER speed changer disassembly

Why do you want to remove it? I had mine all apart and did a repair but didn't feel a need to remove the axle. It seemed very solidly attached. This is a thread I posted when I repaired mine. http://www.shopsmith.com/ss_forum/viewtopic.php?p=232471 On the third page of that thread, however, Chapman...

Re: Shopsmith Tie Clip

Scanning copies of ShopMag I ran across this: Shopsmith_TieClip.jpg My question is has anybody ever seen one? Or possibly own one? The other question is how many issues of ShopMag were published. I have the first three. Starting with no.4 the name was changed to Shopsmith Shavings, no. 10 is the la...
