My new-to-me second one is my dado machine, drill press, belt sander, disk sander and band saw power.
the original one has a Jointech router table built on it and is a real PITA to change over. So, it’s pretty much just a ripper and cutoff saw.
The great thing about the Shopsmith is the availability of parts for all of their machines.
The shopsmith owners site has some excellent lathe accesories, too.
And, checkout the Shopsmith Forum. Great resource.
