Hi to my white squirrel buddy.
Since 1975 there has been at least one Shopsmith in my shop. It’s down to two, now. One outfitted with a Jointech and router table. As you might surmise, that one is pretty much limited to the saw and router functions. My other one is a shorty, with all her functions still intact. Well, more or less. I don’t do any turning. Other than the disc sanders, the only accessories are the BS and the 6X48 belt sander. My metal working tasks are handled by my son. I stick with wood.
But, were a Total Shop machine to become available anywhere near me, I’d sure consider owning it…or turn my boy on to it.
