Shopsmith Lift Assist
Enjoy Effort-Free Lifting When You Raise Your Mark 7 or Mark V into Vertical Position for Drilling, Drum Sanding, Routing, Mortising, or Shaping
Raising your MARK V to vertical can be practically effortless!
The Shopsmith Lift-Assist Reduces the Effort Required to Raise your Mark 7 or Mark V into Vertical Position to as Little as Zero
This is the accessory many Mark V and Mark 7 owners have been wanting for some time. As we get older, we're not as strong as we used to be... and those things that were once easy for us are now a bit more difficult.
Lifting the Mark 7 or Mark V from horizontal to vertical position is one of those procedures that can get a bit tougher with age. The taller you are, of course, the higher you'll want your drill press table once it's raised... and the more difficult it gets to make the move.
But now, there's a great little helper available to take the majority of this effort out of the equation entirely. No matter what your reason for needing a little Assist-ance... in about half an hour to an hour's time, your new Shopsmith Lift-Assist will be doing that lifting work for you.
Again, we're not talking about just a fraction of that effort... but 60%, 65%, 76% up to... every last drop of effort you would normally exert to raise the Mark 7 or Mark V.

Note: Sorry... if you own Shopsmith's steel storage cabinets, with the lift-assist only one of them will slide under the Mark 7/Mark V for storage (if the casters are removed from the steel storage cabinets, two will fit).
Destined to become the favorite accessory of many Mark 7/Mark V owners. It's easy to install. Watch the video below to see how easy!
