Contact info


The only emails I will respond to are “can I send you my headstock for service”, or “can I send my components to you for service”.

The only phone calls I accept or return are from current headstock service customers.


Questions I won’t deal with, either on the phone or in an email:
“I’m thinking of buying a Shopsmith, what do I look for, is it a good deal, etc”
“How do I…” ( answered in my videos, troubleshooting guide, pdf owners manuals, etc)

“What do you think is wrong with my…”

“Do you sell…” (look in my web store, that’s all I sell)
“You know that thingamajig that attaches to the doohickey. ..”

“How much should I ask for my Shopsmith?”

If you email me and don’t receive a response, this is probably why! Do some reading, watch all related videos, go thru your owners manual, etc.


Phone number:
I no longer share my phone number because of the extensive nature of this website, and due to the popularity of my YouTube videos. My videos have had over 115,000 views and many people love to pick up the phone after watching a video for chit chat. I have had far too many people calling and asking questions answered here, in manuals, in my troubleshooting guide, or in my videos.


Headstock or component service customers only, contact me via email.

Same thing, please don’t email me to ask things covered here, in your owners manual, my troubleshooting guide or in my videos. I only answer questions about my services. But there is enough info here you shouldn’t have to ask me about those.

Email me from the account you will look at for replies: whether that be your personal account, or work account. Check your spam folder too in case.

This is about typical for emails, which is why I rarely answer one!


I have a Facebook fanpage too, “Jacob’s Repair Shop”


Address for mailing payments as well as parts or headstock shipping (Ship via Fedex or UPS)
Email me for my address. I need to know how many machines are incoming for inventory and planning purposes. Always email me in advance to ship me parts, components or headstocks for servicing. Include what state you live in when emailing me.
