Dawn is a real sweetheart. She had all of the set screws and bolts presoaked with WD40 and the bench bolts already loosened so the disassembly went very smoothly. As I was dissassembling the Shopsmith and putting parts into the car, she was bringing tools of her fathers for me to take with me.
I am honored to be trusted with the overhaul and cleanup and being the caretaker of her dad's tools.

I made quite a haul as you can see. There is even a 2 speed hand drill. Never seen one before ...

Here are some pics to prove it happened .... :D

If you are reading this Dawn, thank you again, I will take care of them and use them.

I am actually starting on the way tubes tomorrow.... :cool:

JPG, does the crazy green leg color mean anything significant? :confused:

indeed! I spoke with Dawn shortly after you and visited for well over an hour talking all things Shopsmith and about her dad and her use of this machine.

I confirmed that you were indeed an excellent choice for the preservation of this machine, and that it could not have found a more excellent home.

Had it not found a home with you in New Mexico however, it would have travelled across Texas to a new home with me.

I cannot wait to see your restoration process as it progresses, as I still seek a 10E or 10ER for restoration. I wrote Skip Campbell at MKC Tools to be on the lookout for one for me.

As a boy I learned of woodworking from the professor across the street who would work with his every weekend building grandfather clocks and all sorts of things from hardwoods totally not native to my area of the state. He would travel all over with his truck and trailer to score hardwoods for 'our' projects. Great fun for a 9-10 year old boy to be taught by a professor about his passion in woodworking.

I have always wanted one to restore both to use and to honor his memory of the first Shopsmith I ever saw.

Dawn seemed passionate about preserving her fathers, and I reassured her that it would not wind up as parts and pieces on eBay when she gave it to you.

Blessings. I am both jealous of and happy for you at the same time.

Last weekend I popped up into Oklahoma to snag a 94 505 and bandsaw for $75. It was rough in cosmetic appearance having lived a contractors life, but had a good working headstock etc. and slid on the way tubes. Needs affection which it will receive in coming months.

PS: If anyone else comes across one in Texas, New Mexico or Oklahoma that you aren't interested in personally, please PM me or email me.

Dick, you SCORED!!

Dawn, you're a GENEROUS woman. Would you like to have
my baby?

Oh, the price for my feet just went up.
(That vice looks amazing!) :D

Seriously, Dick you SCORED! Congrats,
my friend.

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.

I think the significance of the green legs(and braces) is they have been painted! :cool: Or it is possible they are not OEM. :confused:

Did you have sufficient room in de car for all that?

A treasure trove fer sure. Glad one who appreciates older stuff ended up with it.

Dawn, you found a good home for all that!!!

Thank you Everett. I appreciate the confidence and the support. If you are truly looking for a 10ER to rebuild, there are many around. I will start watching CL for you. I do plan to use this one as well, but I will bring it back to the level I did my other one with pleasure. They are a fun and simple machine to restore.

Steve, I look forward to seeing you soon.

As far as the "score", I am just glad they are with me and not someone who would have parted it out like Everett alluded to. These are such great machines.

JPG, it doesn't look like a paint job. There is written on the bottom of the bench boards "Shopsmith". Like they were warehoused in a Mongomery Wards store for sale. Since the "bench" was optional, I suppose it could have been a knockoff, but it doesn't look like it, just a weird color.

The machine itself, as far as I can tell, is totally unmolested. It was used extensively as you can see infinite fence clamp marks on the clamp bar of the table including the extension table. There is only one set screw mark on the tubes, which tells me that once this thing was put together, it never came apart again.

Oh well, now the work begins. :D

Thanks Paul. Me too! :)

JPG, yes, there is the "straight" clamp screw rip fence. In fact, she is very complete. Everything is there The miter gage detent actually works :D. Aluminum Sanding disk, Small face plate, Drill chuck, spur/dead center, AO Smith 1/2 horse motor. Pretty complete.

Sand? Yeah, that is sand .... it is called dirt or sandy loam .... grows anything ..... :D

LOL, hand saws about 300 percent, clamps about 20 percent, Shopsmiths, 25 percent :D. The hand drills and braces are something I swore I left behind when I was in high school in the sixties but they can be handy at times.

I have one of the way tubes already polished and waxed. Just finished a few mins ago. I will post a picture here this evening if I get a chance ..... Also my farmer style rig for doing it. Some of you guys over think/design it a little ,,,, :p
