GordonB I wouldn t recommend the Shopsmith in expanding to woodturning.

Sorry I wasn’t clear. By using quotes: “Shopsmith” in describing my plan, I meant the Shopsmith mod, as in 5/8” shaft modified with a “tapered flat” in an R8 collet.

Ted, Thank you. I do hear you and understand, and GREAT pictures earlier in case I didn’t.

I have seen a few Shopsmith accessories with 2 setscrews. But I cannot find a spindle adapter that way. Anyone seen one? Mostly thinking Shopsmith to 1” 8TPI as that seems to be the most common out there with the most options. Any downside to either adding another setscrew…or for that matter drilling the shaft to give even better bite? IDK, just wanting more security. Probably overkill.
