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.

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.

Thanks for the participation everyone. This should be fun.

I started this thread ten years ago and at that time posted (above) that I would enjoy looking back on it for a long time to come.
Well ...... ten years, eighteen pages of restorations, and still active,
....... Yup I am indeed enjoying looking back.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed.
.... and I still have the 10ER!
