Getting To Know Your Shopsmith Multi-Purpose Machine

Getting Ready To Use Your Shopsmith

Hello Again,

To Get Started, we want to help you get to know your machine. KNOWING WHICH MODEL MACHINE YOU OWN IS IMPORTANT so you can identify your machine model in case you need to speak with Customer Service regarding assistance/advise on:

  • Servicing your machine;
  • Ordering Accessories, Upgrades and Service Parts.

See Our New Video Showcasing Key Machine Differences

The most obvious difference between machine models is the size and configuration of the main work tables as show in the three photos below:
