I have two copies of the book. Both are hard cover books. One has a blue cover and a 1953 date. The pictures in it are all of the model 10 Shopsmith.

garys,

The first edition was written using the Model 10ER and was published in 1953. It is the one you have in your first picture. The second edition was rewritten for the Mark 5 and came out in 1955. The edition in your second picture is the 3rd and came out sometime after Shopsmith Inc. formed in 1972 but the date is unknown. It was likely in the early to mid 1970's. That was followed by the revised edition in 1984 and the 4th edition in 1989. The covers for the 4th editions are shown in my earlier post.

The difference between the 2nd and 3rd editions was the deletion of the chapter on Spray Finishing in the 3rd edition. Likely since Shopsmith Inc. didn't continue selling the Magna Sprayer which as a kit came with the air compressor, spray gun, 2 air hoses (5’ & 10’), dusting nozzle, tire inflator and garden hose adapter they didn't include it in the book any longer. The revised edition added additional chapters and the 4th edition included using the Mark V 510.

Unfortunately, we tend to forget about other Magna/Shopsmith Tools and focus mainly on the Mark 5/V and some on the Model 10E and 10ER. JPG is correct and Modern Power Tool Woodworking would be a great edition to anyone's library who has or is interested in the Mark VII. Also worth mentioning here is the book Fun With A Saw also by R. J. DeCristoforo featuring the Magna SawSmith Radial Arm Saw. Both books are in my collection and someday I hope to have both of these tools in my collection.

I received the book yesterday. Faster than normal. It usually takes 2-3 weeks.

The cover is beat up a bit but otherwise, it is like new and all the pages are present.
