You're scaring me Mike. You're starting to sound like Donald Rumsfeld.

Mike, I got my bearings installed and put the drive shaft assembly back into the headstock. Now it runs smooth as silk. I used your thread for most of the process. Thanks again and now I have this thread linked from my desktop.

Glad the thread helped. It's actually a pretty easy process. Everything on these ShopSmiths are quite simple to work on once you work up the courage to dig in. Good luck.

I have two . One a 10ER and a 10E I believe. Restored both of them and they have speed changers. I can't get $250 a piece for them so far. Loved redoing them but they don't have a market here in Michigan. May part out but breaks my heart.

Labors of love are not done for resale and do indeed break one's heart unless they find a good home. It those cases it does the heart good. I hope to not ever have to test that.

I just became the new owner of neglected Mark 5 - a 'greenie' as I am learning they are called. I understand that your model is different, but there are obvious similarities and many of your methods should work regardless of the machine being worked on.

I don't know if I will do full restore, but this thread was certainly an inspiration. It took me two days to get through, soaking up every bit of information and struggling along with you as you fought Mr. Murphy right up to the end. Classic!

My first post on this forum has to be 'Well done and well documented. Thank you very much for taking the time to share!"
