That's awesome that you have two sequential serial numbers!

It’s been a while since I revisited this thread, but I had another item I’d like to share.

In-box Flexible Shaft

I think many of us may have seen a flexible shaft come along with a vintage Shopsmith machine we’ve acquired at one point or another, but not many still in the box. Magna recommended limiting the bending of the shaft to maintain its internal integrity, so the box had to be pretty big! I also wondered why I’d never found any instructions for use of the shaft in the various piles of documents I’ve collected, and it looks like that’s because they simply stuck the instructions on the outside of the box (…the box that was too big for anyone to hold onto!).

These were pretty pricey back in the day - even more expensive than a speed changer ($15.95 vs $13.95), and we know which of those has retained its value better!

Right?! In fact, throw in a long extension cord and some 6” casters, I could probably clear some serious brush on the property here…

Flexible Shaft Adapter

Since I just showed the Flexible Shaft, I figured this would be a good companion piece. Before the Flexible Shaft purpose-built for the Shopsmith was available, Magna offered a Flexible Shaft Adapter for the more commonly available flexible shafts of the day that fit a 1/2” spindle.

I’ve got a air compressor with paint gun, jigsaw, and a flex shaft with grinding stone.

Probably the rarest of the Model 10 accessories is the lower blade guard. My wife an I were on a road trip last week. We were in Durango CO on Thursday. I had my lap top with me and when we checked into the hotel I checked eBay at about 1400. A 10ER lower blade guard was listed for a Buy it Now price of $39.99 and $17.00 shipping. It had been listed for about 4 hours. I couldn't click the Buy button fast enough. The price was unbelievable. If it had been put on eBay as a bid item it would have easily gone for well over $100.00 I am sure.

There are a few Model 10 accessories that are in the same class as the lower blade guard. They are the lower belt guard, old style table raiser, key switch, flex shaft, 10E fence rear lock, the SPT adapter set and the 4E jointer and head rest with the adapter and pulley for the motor. I have at least one of each of these so the lower blade guard was the last item to complete the collection.

Nice collection of Model 10 stuff. You have items both in the early gray boxes and the later yellowish boxes. I see you have a set of the Jig Saw files in the box which is a rarer find.

Darren and John,

If you check my thread here on the Community Page titled Shopsmith Model 10's What When and Where on page 10 you will see information on the "other" Table Raisers like yours above. One I have, shown in the picture there, is like both of yours but has a set screw instead of a knob while the other one has a different collar. A third one I have not pictured in the other thread is the same as both of yours.
Here is my table raiser. It is like the one on the right in the thread Shopsmith Model 10's What When and Where

I like the air compressor and paint gun! I had to do a major restoration on mine (it came out pretty nice, and I'm fortunate to also have the original hose), but yours looks like it's all original - and a goldie to boot!
