Free shipping 11/24 thru 11/27. What should be on a list of small parts to buy?

Post by CPB »

I saw on one of the Shopsmith Facebook groups that they're having free shipping 11/24 thru 11/27.

I've seen Shopsmith's list of the most frequently ordered service parts but I don't need any of those. What other small parts would you put on a list of things to order? Not necessarily service parts, but just parts that would be useful to have on hand, like tee nuts.

Might be a good idea to reread the 'three day extension' re free shipping.

You can purchase a gen 2 headstock or upgrade and EITHER get free shipping or pick it up and get $ off.

Not precisely stated, but that is what I conclude.


Assuming we be gandering at the same adv blurb.

The post I saw was made by a SS employee and didn't have anything to do with the Power Pro. This one:

This thread has been viewed over 80 times and no one has any ideas for a small parts order?

Hmmm, "Shopsmith employee", Facebook??? If this was a true SS thing why wouldn't all of us that get regular SS sale emails have gotten this in an official email?

OK, I still wonder why we didn't get an email from SS on Mike's webinar. We always have in the past. To the point, you have to participate in the webinar to get the free shipping (freight?) on things promoted on the webinar. Sounds like the free freight/shipping on the MK7 that we have seen in recent emails. I don't think you can't just go on the web site and order things.

That isn't the post. I said it didn't have anything to do with the Power Pro. Her name is Renee Blake. If you don't use Facebook then I guess it'll remain a mystery.

Regardless of whether the S&H is free or not, what small parts would you put on a list of things to order? I'd like to get a few tee nuts, but would like some input on whatever else might be useful to have on hand.

1) Maybe some T-Posts in addition to the T-Nuts you mentioned.
2) I like the fence mounted featherboard, though I later went to stock guides. (Assumes a fence with a T-slot on top, 510/520 or upgraded 500 fence.)
3) The new Poly-V belts are intriguing. Reportedly less slip so allows less tension. This is especially beneficial in theory for PowerPro, which has two Poly-V belts and the new style Idler which seems susceptible to heat and load.
4) Router chuck(s) if you don't have one.
5) Saw arbor(s). But these are frequently on sale as included with a new blade. Also currently included with those 5/8" specialty blades SS sells, which includes a plywood blade.

Also depends on what model and other SS equipment you have. I don't really think of the free shipping as one of the best deals, but it is popular.

Did you hear anything about the 2X4 contest? Scott mentioned it on My Growth Rings, my wife found it on FaceBook, don't know if they've reported it anywhere else.
