In order to get the most out of our Shopsmith Mark Vs and other shop tools, it’s wise to give them an occasional polish with a good furniture grade paste wax. But what is the best wat to apply it? In this video we’ll run through the most common things I wax on my Mark V and I’ll offer a few tips that I learned while I was the Academy instructor at the Shopsmith Factory Showroom in Dayton, Ohio.

Does having a 1952 Model 10ER half taken apart count as a shop smith owner? If so then I’m probably using it all sorts of wrong.

Ha! Well, to paraphrase a great quote: Those who own a Shopsmith but don’t use it have no advantage over those who don’t own one. Get that puppy together!
