With the volume of various threads and posts related to technical info on the E / ER machines, I saw it fitting to start a thread that can compile E / ER related information in one place. It will either contain the info directly or link out to appropriate areas. Informational commentary and dialog is welcome. To keep the thread on topic may be difficult. We'll see how this works.

PLEASE DON'T POST TO THIS THREAD UNTIL I LAY A BASIC FOUNDATION DOWN. I'LL DELETE THIS PARAGRAPH WHEN I'M DONE. IF YOU 'D LIKE TO COMMENT, USE A COMMUNITY THREAD OR EVEN POTPOURRI THREAD.

Due to the ravages of time, many of the links that Mickyd compiled above are no longer current, this is an up to date list that I put together. :)

Shopsmith 10E & 10ER Resources


The Shopsmith 10E (10Experimental) and later 10ER (10Experimental Revised)
was invented by Dr. Hans Goldschmidt after WW2. They were manufactured from
late 1947 until the Mark V was introduced in 1954.

Everett Davis has done a lot of excellent work restoring and enhancing Shopsmith
documentation. These are available on his Google Drive (to access these files,
click the link below, then in the first post click on the red “My Google Drive”)
https://www.shopsmith.com/ss_forum/maintenance-and-repair-f10/shopsmith-large-format-drawings-illustrations-and--t16113.html

Then open the folder “10E & 10ER MAGNA”
You can download a restored manual for the 10E and/or 10ER but be sure to also
get the “Preliminary MAGNA Shopsmith Manual Restored” as well. Everett has
added a large amount of material to this file covering changes the were made
over the course of production, and the the history of these great machines. Well
worth a read.

While you are there you will also want to click on the folder “PTWFE 10ER 1953”
and download the file. This is an restored and enhanced digital copy of the first
edition of Power Tool Woodworking For Everyone by R. J. DeCristoforo. This book
was written to illustrate how to use all the functions of the 10E/ER, later editions
feature the Mark V.

Other sources for documentation are:

- VintageMachinery.org under Magna Engineering
http://vintagemachinery.org/mfgIndex/detail.aspx?id=338&tab=3

- Geoffrey Baker’s web page
http://www.lhdigest.com/SS/PDFsearch.cfm

Parts and information on mods are available on Skip Campbell’s MKCtools web page.
http://www.mkctools.com/index.html

Parts are also available from HogWinslow
https://sites.google.com/site/hogwinslowwoodworking/?fbclid=IwAR2OQOYxKWgi3jUCL45_syMbiYnq4Eh_lZRKiOm1srtWgsnNOxPG34rG3OY


There are also several communities on line that support the 10E/ER

- the Shopsmith forum (but then you are here already ;) ) – I find this one has the best search function and you can also use Google to search it, and it has the best format for long, in-depth discussions and restoration threads. Best viewed on a larger screen, desktop, laptop, or tablet.
On a smart phone use the Tapatalk app.
https://www.shopsmith.com/ss_forum/index.php

Some of the 10ER specific threads that will be of interest.

- Mickyd's restoration thread
https://www.shopsmith.com/ss_forum/maintenance-and-repair-f10/restoration-progress-on-my-1952-er10-t3503.html

There used to be older style email groups on Yahoo Groups for the Shopsmith 10ER and Shopsmith. Due to changes at Yahoo these groups have moved to Groups.IO. The change over was recent so all the old discussions, files, and pictures are not necessarily ported over yet and some were lost forever.

I see that SSUG.org is gone now too.
