Since I began specializing in Shopsmith Mark V headstock repairs a little over 9 years ago, I have rebuilt over 1,400 units, plus scads of motors, components, and shipped thousands of videos and repair parts to do it yourselfers.
15 headstocks rebuilt so far in March, 2017:
Trook, PA, 1985 machine
Dickson, PA, mid 1970’s machine
Munson, NV, 1955 machine
Graf, WI, 1999 machine
Hulse, OH, 2001 machine
Haban, AZ, 1982 machine
Hildebrand, VA, 1954 machine
Tocco, MI, 1993 machine
Wild, VA, 1954 machine
Wong, CA, 1984 machine
Thompson, MN, 1984 machine
Kulvete, CO, 1985 machine
Price, FL, 1982 machine
Ressler, MI, 1982 machine
Fisher, OR, 1988 machine
Only 1 on hand to rebuild, and none incoming so I may have a few days off soon!
Here are emails from recent repair customers:
I got the headstock this morning, Jacob, and it runs like a charm! Thank you so very much!
Thanks for the great service and rapid turnaround. Everything went is as you advertised. Glad I found your web site. Joe
Here’s a switch on a recent repair I definitely had to replace to make the machine safer!
