Make sure the lead cord is thick.

I'd use 12 gauge wires, and make sure the ground is just as thick.

No problem, if you use a large gauge extension cord for the lead.

Oh, OldIron, Eddie Castelin sells a self-powered sander.
Here's the instruction video. He has the parts, too.

10 ER, stripped down.
Basic 10ER, Parts machine. Will be a semi-dedicated drill-press machine.
10 ER, a "survivor" of the trailer fire, in the back yard, needing restoration. Has a Mk5 headrest. Finally, stripped down.
Numerous parts, for Model 10 stuff. Except for lower saw guard, A and B adapters, I've got it.

Looking for one more, or some 9 inch extension table raisers.

Actually there were four outlets all on the outside.I removed two and mounted the other two on the inside.I didn,t really see the need for four outlets.I ran the wire from the two boxes through one of the bench tubes.

Let's bring this thread back to life and add some more postings.

This is the first Shopsmith I restored. It is Model 10ER, S/N R64000 and came with a Jig Saw plus I added the 4" Jointer Model 4E to it.

This Shopsmith Model 10E is the oldest Shopsmith I have restored. It is Serial Number 1077 and one of the original 250 shipped to Montgomery Ward Stores on the West Coast November 15, 1947. This picture replicates fig. 1 from the original typed manual.

Although I have mostly restored Model 10's I have done Mark 5/V's also. Below is a Greenie I restored that also came with a Jointer and Jig Saw.

I restored this Goldie a few years ago and believe it came out looking the best. The colors are a near perfect match to the original. One thing I could never understand about the Goldies, also called Brown / Gold / Tan /Anniversary Model Machines in the Shopsmith history, is since they were only 6 to 9 years after the introduction of the Mark 5 what Anniversary do they celebrate?

This is one of my favorite pictures I have taken of my Shopsmith restorations. I had five Model 10's at the time (3 pictured have been sold). Today, again I have five restored and two more I am working on. If I do not sell any before the others are finished I may have to do this again with 7.

Farmer asked in March 2010 near the begining of this thread
I see that most of us took pictures in front of garage doors :) Could it be that it is the only presentable place we have for a background? :)
I would say yes. Beside it eliminates clutter in the background of the picture.

Looks fantastic John. How did you end up with consecutive serial numbers? Would 83974 be the younger brother? :rolleyes: Either way a good pair to keep if you are going to have more than one Model 10.

Oops, of course. I did get it backwards. :eek: As far as the S/N's, it was just luck. They were both bought here in the Salt Lake City area from different people at different times.

I haven't used 83974 yet. I haven't had a need to. When 83973 is done it will be a dedicated drill press. I did a proof of concept for the drill press with S/N 69356. It is un-restored but you can see in the picture it has the SS logo on the back side which makes it a demo machine. Once 83973 is done for the drill press 69356 will be restored as a display machine complete with a 4E jointer, lower belt guard, speed changer, utility light, early table raiser, etc..

You gentlemen do such an incredible job restoring these machines, if I got my hands on one I wouldn’t dare to use it. I would put it in the living room and call it a piece of art.
