Dusty - I had a Crafter's Station as reported in "how did you get your Shopsmith" thread. But as you missed that - here's what it is (was):
The CS looks a lot like a Power Station from a distance, but it is different in that it has two power switches. Both switches are exactly the same as those on the newer 510s and 520s. The switch in the front is to run the saw, which is the same as a Mark V. There is also a lever which replaces the Speed Control Assembly present on the Mark Vs. The lever with an arching movement changed the speed of the shaft and arbor. As I remember it didn't have an extendable quill the same as a Mark V.
The power switch in the back of the headstock is also an identical switch. The rear switch turned the motor in reverse and rotated the quill shaft in the opposite direction from the sawing rotation. One had to be careful to have one switch off before throwing the second.
The problem I had with mine was the power switch in the back which was used for all operations other than sawing worked fine BUT the motor would not start on its own. I had to give the shaft a turn by hand at the same time as turning on the switch in order to get the thing going. This frustration grew and grew. After trading out another Crafter's Station (the big boxes back and forth) and having the same problem - I asked SS if they would take the CS back for full credit and sell me a Mark V. They did and I guess we are all happy.
When I bought the Crafter's Station - I bought a band saw, jointer, belt sander and DC 3300 to go with it. Many other items such as the saw table, disk sander, upper and lower saw guards, floating tables and extension table came with the Crafters Station. In fact, these are the same items I am using today with my 510. I had already used all and adjusted them to my liking - so kept them.I gave the new ones (that came with my 510) back to SS.
Octogenarian's have an earned right to be a curmudgeon.
