I bought a 1955 greenie Shopsmith in good condition 2 years ago to have a cheap solution for a table saw because I had a flooring project. After discovering this was not a great way to bust up sheet goods, I decided to outfit my humble basement shop with dedicated single machines and have been able to accomplish the task for about the same money as would have been needed to buy all the other Shopsmith add-on’s & accessories or buy a new Shopsmith. The Shopsmith has been relegated to drill press status and does a great job for what I need it for. Maybe if I get into turning I’ll use it for that to learn on. Not dissing the Shopsmith at all, I’ve just found alternatives that work better for me.
