You just like 'Antiques'! However, I agree!

I decided to reverse the colors on the headstock. I like the contrast of the color and the speed dial.

There has been much misuse of the Mark V moniker when referring to Mark5's. Mark 5 was a product manufactured by Magna Engineering, Yuba Tool co, and Magna American.

It was not until the creation of 'Shopsmith, Inc.' that a Mark V was built.

All the Goldies and Greenies and smooth gray versions are Mark 5's. All the Mark 5's (and later model 10er's) had cast aluminum sanding disks.

All after 1972 when Shopsmith Inc, was formed, are Mark V's and SSI introduced the steel sanding disc(I do not know of they made ANY aluminum discs).

Although essentially identical(with a few improvements along the way) the Mark 5's are a distinct model sub-group as are Mark V's. Their attachments do vary(just some, not all).


Adding to this confusion is the Mark 7 - VII which was referred to by Magna American both ways!

My 1973 vintage MK V came with an aluminum disc.

Before August hopefully. Just acquired a freebie(Jig saw) and stuff for my mini(also a wip) which have delayed progress somewhat. A couple of items to (re)paint and re-assembly will commence. Am still struggling with a way to store the main work table/trunion on the 'bench'. I hope to get ALL the accoutrements(A long list) a place to rest on the bench when not 'active'.

BTW My mini will be named FrankenGG(Farmer already has Frankensmith) since it consists of scavenged parts from a multitude of Greenies and Goldies(and a couple of parts from the gray variety).

P.S. Maybe I should call her FrankenGGG!

I would like to see these pics, but I have never been able to read any of the attachments from ------------------------.

Everyone else's attachments appear on my screen as either the pictures or the names of the picture files. But --------'s attachments show in his main post as "attachment" and a number just like you see above in the quote section.

Is there a trick that will let me see these attachments?

He deleted them from the forum. The posts have the residual image info but the images are no longer available. They were good photos.
