Go to the Shopsmith.com site and open the owners section. Next on a top bar, open the Mark V section. A selection list will drop down. Select serial numbers and you should get chart of serial numbers and the year built. Easy....

Okay, so my serial number is 204330. From the list, I could have a 1985 or 1986 model. I thinks SS told me once it was a 1985, but there is no way to know from this chart. Now they use the date of manufacture, so I guess they make at most one per day. That makes it a lot easier if you have a newer machine.

Serial number 204330 would be in the May (203746) July (205719) time frame of 1985.

Ed,
How do you know that? You must have access to a list I haven't seen.

A question about the serial number chart at the Shopsmith site: It seems to break between 1961 and 1978 but didn't Shopsmith, Inc. begin producing Mark V's in 1973 or around that time?
