That one has not only managed to travel all the way across the country to Florida but it was also upgraded to the metal extension table. I don't see all the original wood extension table parts in the pictures so making it "original" will take some work. It would be nice to see it go to someone who will restore and preserve it. If any of you decide to purchase it I can help with pictures of mine as a reference.

Mark V completely upgraded to Mark 7
Mark V 520
All SPT's & 2 Power Stations
Model 10ER S/N R64000 first one I restored on bench w/ metal ends & retractable casters.

That is not only a bargain it is a steal. The speed changer alone is worth $150.

I have no clue if this belt buckle is a bargain at $30, but I’ve never seen one before.

Sometimes companies pay for a limited run of items like this for employee appreciation or special anniversary gifts. Maybe someone can find the history behind this one if Shopsmith was really the one responsible for it. Hard to put a value on it, since it is mostly a collector's item.

Apparently they read your post and relisted it with a higher price! Now it's 250 starting bid

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Shopsmith-10E- ... ect=mobile

I saw it 10 minutes after it listed before and passed on it even with the low serial 1092 as it was upgraded and not original 10E now. Everett

I didn't need another speed changer or I would have considered it more.
