Welcome to the Forum,
Sounds like you are off to a good start using your Mark V. The key to a well running Shopsmith is proper maintenance. Follow the cleaning and lubrication from your manual. The link below has a video on waxing in the second post and contains good information.https://www.shopsmith.com/ss_forum/maintenance-and-repair-f10/well-that-explains-it-t23923.html
Another place to find Shopsmith information is under the Maintenance and Repair
section for Shopsmith Large Format Drawings, Illustrations and More by Everett Davis
. This will be one of the first three topics. In it you will find a wealth of information on the Shopsmith tools. Some are directly linked there and others are on “My Google Drive
” with documents too large to be directly linked. Everett has become the Shopsmith historian by saving and restoring manuals and other documents. There is a PDF of an older Jointer Manual on his google drive.
As for finding Manuals for your SS 6” Belt Sander, Magna Jointer and Magna Jig Saw the good news is any Manual for these will cover the operation. There were very few changes to these SPT's over the years. The Belt Sander only had a change to the dust chute and the Jig Saw to the trunnion lock. The Jointer has had more changes mostly in safety upgrades and all can be added to any previous Jointers except the dust chute cannot be added to the Magna Model 4E Jointer made for the Shopsmith Model 10's.
