New to the list so sorry if you’ve heard this before. I just bought a Shopsmith from around 1981. The motor has immediately started to slow down. Now when I turn it own it continually blows a fuse. I guess i need a new motor. Anyone know of a good source for as used, new, rebuilt motor. I hate to spend the money to send the entire head into someone cross country and have it all refurbished. Thank you.

As people upgrade their Mark V’s to the new PowerPro DVR motor lots of these are turning up for sale on eBay.
Also you should ask on the ShopSmith forum. There are lots of people there who know a LOT about SS and can likely help you rebuild/repair the one you have.
