Just to follow up on my earlier post, it looks like Shopsmith has cleared up their FB post regarding repairs. It looks like they are having a sale on headstock repairs later this summer.

It sounds like they have to clear up a backlog of repairs/other issues and will move forward after that. Fingers crossed!
