I had one in the front room of an apartment. Like Jethro Gibbs's, it too was a "coffee table."
Jethro's lived in the basement, but at various times, I saw his father, and Ducky, using
it as a drinks table. Dad played John Walton Sr, and Ducky has stated, that in his earlier
life, he looked like Napoleon Solo.
It seems that I added to the Wikipedia article on Jethro's name and Model 10.
Cast Iron Shopsmith Model 10ER is all in caps. Only I'd do that.
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.
