Dan – so if I have a R-8 5/8” collet, I can take a Shopsmith shaft, cut to length to clear the carriage and figure in the arbor lengths, and use all of the Shopsmith accessories and arbors ? If so who sells just the shaft ? Price ?
Yes, this is correct- or at least most of the accessories will fit. No I know sells a particular shaft, but would be easy to make. I ended up sacrificing an old “greenie” quill. Anything 5/8” should fit on it. My Fox has a switch to go in reverse and I have driven accessories (like bandsaw) from quill end because they now spin in correct direction.

-- When someone tells me that can't be done, I think they are challenging me.....
