Reassembling a Mark V Etc.

Post by JPG »

This thread is intended to illustrate reassembly of a Mark V 510 (sn 51-003056) (Inv 06/30/86) which I recently acquired. It was NOT in running condition(it ran but. . .). The Mark V was not COMPLETELY disassembled, but the links will cover most of the major areas. Eventually I intend to include reassembly of some SPT's. This will continue to be a work in progress.

It is NOT my intention to get into aligning etc. I refer you to the appropriate Shopsmith literature or the Saw Dust Sessions.

This is NOT intended to replace nor be a substitute for either Shopsmith instructions/literature or Saw Dust Sessions. It IS rather an attempt to illustrate with reasonable quality photos that to which those instructions refer.

Any errors or confusion WILL be 'fixed' when brought to my attention. I solicit input regarding both! I do want this to be accurate and helpful!

The links below are to major sections of the Mark V. Each of them link to multiple threads themselves.

I really appreciate these. Will surely come in super-handy when I start work on the headstock repairs, the casters I have on the way now and when I get to purtyin’ up the base and carriages.

Thanks

Thanks. I just started a teardown of the Shop Deputy headstock going along with the Sawdust Sessions. It's been a number of years since I did my last one and I know this will be useful. I recall teardown being easier than reassembly. :p
