Welcome to the forum. We'll all pitch in and gladly help you rebuild as many as your shop will hold.
Thank you everyone for the warm welcome. I'll be posting pix of the shop shortly. I'm in the process of unpacking after a move, I am an Apprentice Bladesmith and ornamental blacksmith so the hot shop is currently getting all of my time. When we moved I lost a 3 bay garage and inherited a single circa 1950's garage. It's been quite the challenge to get the forge, powerhammer, press, welding table, anvil and sundry finishing tools in it. A place for everything... I had an old Sears table saw, but needed a drill press, lathe and ran out of floor space... so I really NEEDED a Shopsmith...(and I COULD justify a second one, but will have to add onto the shop: DOH!) I'm strangely fascinated by the greenies.
Funny, my wonderful hubby is a computer nerd, I'm the tool "chick" (well granny now).
