shopsmith is a fantastic tool. I probably would of kept mine except that it was too hard on my back switching tools.

Congrad's on a fine tool. Shopsmith's are upgradable. I just upgraded mine with a larger "510 table". I recommend getting a saw guard assy. if it doesn't doesn't have one.
Very cool reminds me of my Dads old Emco Star machine . Except this is a real machine his was more of a model makers. Still i had loads of fun on it and you will on yours. Enjoy.
Very cool. Dad restored a couple of those and gave them happy homes. that one looks like it was well loved and cared for.

My father had a Mark V and loved it. I inherited it when he died in the mid-80s and used it quite a bit. When I started doing larger projects, I began accumulating dedicated tools, so I donated the ShopSmith to a trade school.
