I was closed the first 2 weeks of August for my summer vacation.
Since reopening again on Thursday (August 17) I have already received 8 headstocks for service. 7 more are incoming in the next few days.
Headstocks rebuilt so far in August 2017:
Hatjioannou, NC, 1955 machine
Alford, TX, 1959 machine
6 other machines on hand for service, 7 more incoming.
Here are a few thank you emails received from recent repair customers:
Jacob I have been in business as well for 38 years! You are one of the best and most organized people I have ever done business with. Thank you
The headstock was at our front door when we returned home on Wednesday. It was reinstalled yesterday and everything seems to be just great.
Hey Jacob: just fired up the shopsmith!
Works great!! Thanks for your help!! Greg
I received my mark v yesterday. Took it to my shop and mounted it . When I turned it on I just stood there and smiled. It runs as smooth as my Subaru! Great job! Can’t wait to get into a project with it! Thanks for getting it done so quickly.
Jacob, I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my rebuilt headstock. It was a pleasure during business with you. It’s pretty amazing how you run your business so efficiently, very organized very honest and your work is top quality and extremely quick turn around time. Thanks again.
Just wanted to let you know I received my headstock yesterday.
Thank you for your fast turn around and great work.
This unusual motor has a single bearing and a rear bushing bearing with an oiler spout for that bushing. This is the first time I have ever seen this in dealing with over 1,500 headstocks. From a 1950s machine.
