Shopsmith Speed Reducer

Now, you can...

Selecting the right tools to do the job is the key to achieving professional woodworking results. You already know that the Mark V provides the appropriate operating speed for nearly every woodworking task. Now you can expand its capabilities to even higher levels with the amazing Shopsmith Speed Reducer !

Shopsmith Speed Reducer - Create Heavy Or Oversized Turnings Shopsmith Speed Reducer - Use Forstner or Clockface Bits To Drill Large Diameter Holes

Designed for use on the Mark V Models 500, 505, 510 and 520, the Speed Reducer provides a 7:1 speed reduction ratio. So, instead of its usual 700 to 5200 rpm speed range, your range increases to 100 to 5200 rpm. As a result, you can now perform even more operations while improving safety and increasing your ability to achieve top-quality results.

With the Mark V set at its lowest speed setting of 700 rpm, the Speed Reducer output spindle will be turning at only 100 rpm ! As you increase the speed of the Mark V, the Reducer's rpm also increases at a 7:1 ratio. This provides new levels of speed reduction for whatever operation you are performing... turning, sawing, drilling or boring

Now, you can drill metals, plastics and large diameter holes in the hardest woods with the Shopsmith Speed Reducer. Use Forstner bits, hole saws and large multi-spur or clockface bits with improved results, added safety and less burning of the bit or the workpiece. Also helpful for fine sanding on the lathe, disc or drum sander... and for large diameter turnings. Attaches at three points to the Mark V's spindle and its two way tubes for vibration-free operation. A valuable shop addition !
