Hi Fitz; You probably will not be able to use a mandrel witha #2 morse taper because the morse tapered ones are used on standard lathes and the taper goes in the drive of the lathe. SS on the other hand uses their own lathe drive centers which mount on the headstock or the Jacobs drill chuck is used...

Shopsmith on QVC

I know that they have a Craftsman tool hour on occasion.

Nick's Plywood editorial

Can anyone tell me how to find Nick's editorial on plywood?
The links that are posted do not work.

I recently E-Mailed SS and was told that there is ony one instructor (apparently Rick Davis) and that they were not coming anywhere near the East Coast in the foreseeable future. I guess we owners will have to educate ourselves.

Pinky In order to transport several SS Mk V's in the past I removed the legs. Do this as follows; get some saw horses that are slightly taller than the bench (lower) tubes. Only leave the headstock and the table carriage on the way (upper) tubes and lock them in the center. The lift one end of the m...
