I know that being a grease monkey does not have anything to do with woodworking but I enjoy spending my weekends out in the garage working on my woodworking projects. I am kind of a jack-of-all trades when it comes to woodworking and I enjoy learning new techniques with each project.

After building my military shadow box with a friend of mine and using his Shopsmith for a few parts of the project, I decided that I wanted one for myself so I picked up a 1958 Shopsmith Mark V and am in the middle of restoring it. The motor when I got it would barely turn and now it runs like a champ (amazing what blowing out 57 years of sawdust can do!). I replaced the original v-belt and three of the four bearings; as soon as the gilmer belt arrives I can start putting the headstock back together. I have about a third of the parts painted and I will soon start removing the rust from the lower tubes. As soon as I get some pictures downloaded from my phone I will upload them.
