15 headstocks rebuilt in November 2017

With the fall chill in the air, woodworkers turn to projects for the home and to gift making for the holidays. It is a perfect time to send your machine or components in to me for service. And remember to look at my web store for some tools, manuals, lubes, to help you with your machine even if it is operating at 100%.

Here are a couple of thank you emails from recent repair customers:

Hi Jacob, The headstock arrived today, and of course, I had to try it out.  I waxed up the way tubes and put it back together.  Powered it up and ran through the speeds.  Wow!  What a difference!  Am really looking forward to starting some home repair, without letting the entire neighborhood hear the machine running at full squeal.

Hope you are doing well.    Thanks again for the great service! Best regards, Ward

Mr. Anderson,I was finally able to fire up the Shopsmith you repaired for me this past weekend. It works like a charm! Thank you for your service and attention to detail in the repair.  Eric

  Received the order. Great turn around and service !

Thank you ,Joe


Damage to the headstock casting caused by a drop onto the quill shaft. In this case, caused by poor packing. But, it could also happen at home if the headstock slips while in drill press mode.

A recent repair, painted at customer request. Looks a lot better now.
