Yes, based on what I read this occurred on Nov. 7, and they won't be back at least on Blip. Hopefully SS will consider You Tube. FYI, these are part of the Reference Videos for sale at SS. I recently purchased the set when they went on sale. The quality is only slightly better than the online versions, but at least I'll have these.

New here, repair service?

Post by shawnredf »

Hello All,

I just recently dusted off the Model V I bought when I retired 4 years ago, and muddled my way thru my first project--a cradle for a grandson expected shortly. During that effort I realized I wanted a band saw, I had the jointer but no band saw. Craigslist yielded one and when I went to buy it, it came with a whole other Shopsmith. The seller acknowledged that the head stock "needed service" but the deal included the band saw, a dado and other niceties that I wanted so couldn't pass it up ($350).

I'm finding the head stock repair is more than I am comfortable taking on myself. First off, the sheaves are frozen on the shafts--I've oiled them but they don't seem to budge. Maybe I could do it, but projects and other passions limit the time. So I'm looking for anyone in the AZ area interested in taking on the repair, or coaching me thru it very closely.

Thanks for listening.

Shawn

I am new to this forum and glad to see the community here. I own 2 Menard's PHD SS clones. Bought one a year ago and it started my wood turning obsession. I got that clone for $75.

Today I purchased another identical clone for $150 delivered from 60 miles away into WI. I know these are not real ship smiths but I hope I am welcome here anyway.
