This month marks a milestone for me. I have been specializing in Shopsmith Mark V headstock repairs for 10 full years now. In that time, I have rebuilt over 1,500 machines in addition to doing component repairs, motor rebuilds, and parts sales for do it yourselfers.
In these 10 years, I have published my troubleshooting guide, 3 repair dvds, 48 YouTube short repair related videos and this website. Two years ago I moved away from eBay sales and created my own parts store, now with over 80 items for sale.
Thank you to the thousands of customers over these years, some travelling to bring me their machines. It has been a pleasure to help you enjoy your woodworking more with a properly operating headstock. I have learned a ton and still see things I have never encountered so that keeps it interesting.
