This month has started off slower because of the awkwardly placed July 4 holiday. But I have been busy sending out parts, manuals, video links, etc for my web store. Headstocks are starting to arrive now, too. I am only taking 15 machines this month for repair, and 12 slots have already sold, so secure your spot if you need work done on your headstock.
7 headstocks rebuilt so far in July 2018:
Safrit, NC, 1983 machine
Hartzler, OH, 1980 machine
Burton, CA, 1954 machine
Bowald, OH, 1979 machine
Deneve, MI, 1962 machine
Landess, WA, 1956 partial machine
Guddat, NV, 1984 machine
3 headstocks on hand to rebuild, 1 incoming.
Here are a few recent thank you emails from repair and parts customers:
Jacob – got my headstock back yesterday & was like a kid at Christmas. Within an hour had it unpacked, remounted and spun up through the speeds. It runs smoother & quieter than any time in the 30+ years I’ve owned it. Thanks for a great improvement, and I really appreciate you returned it calibrated & reset to lowest speed.Byron
Jacob, just wanted you to know that we returned to Kansas with the Shopsmith intack, it is up and purring – Made two items on it and cleaned and OILED it right after.
Thanks for fitting us into your schedule. All the Best,
Stephanie and Dave
Yesterday I received and installed the “Beefy Drive Belt” I ordered from you. Your videos were perfect. To my eye, my old belt looked pretty good. After viewing one of your videos I better understood the importance of the width of the belt (my old one was right at .5”). I decided to try your beefy drive belt. Based on your video, installation was a breeze. What a difference! More power than I have ever had. The most bang for the buck I could imagine in an upgrade for my Mark V.
I received my headstock today. It suffered no ill effects from the shipping and it runs like new. All the noise/vibration is gone.
Thanks again for your repairs. This is a great service you provide to us Shopsmith owners.
