old Mark 5 needs tuneup--Indianapolis

Post by dreamspinner »

Have had Mark 5 for decades. It's gotten loose. Be real interested in having someone come to my place in Zionsville and restore factory settings.

About 10 years ago I rebuilt several Shopsmith headstocks, but then I moved on to different activity. There are probably rebuilders on eBay and at the Shopsmith headquarters who can do great rebuild/maintenance work for fair charges.

If you're not so much after the headstock rebuild (new bearings, belts, etc.), but after the alignment of the tables and gages, that's a different matter which the folks on the Forum could likely point you to.

Good luck,
