Hi Gene, Dusty and rkh2. I’m new here but these guys know me from the SS forum. I have a dream 30’ x 40’ dedicated workshop in Canada equipped with everything from a shaper to a 25” dual drum sander and of course all the normal stuff but when we bought our winter place in AZ. I had only a semi enclosed carport and woodworking withdrawals. The answer for me was a used Mark V 510 that I quickly supplemented with the bandsaw, belt sander, jointer and planer. I didn’t stop there. I picked up and restored a 1950 10ER back home in Canada and if anyone doubts the precision available with SS I would point them to the miters and grain matches on my Oops! project, posted here. The critical (one chance is all you get) miters were all done on the 10ER. So was the lathe duplication work on the legs. Shopsmith, to me at least, represents the most quality woodworking equipment you can fit in a small space. Don’t expect production speed, but the quality and precision are as good as the man operating it.
