I'll have to post some more pics, it even came with the very old "warranty" card that was supposed to be mailed in. I also noticed last night that I have a Mark 5 made by Magna. SN# 263417

Files are in Folders:
There are numerous documents manuals and other material, with document restorations, some with enhanced photos, and word search capable, with active tables of contents. All free and donated to the Worldwide Shopsmith Community.
There’s even a section I personally scanned from Dr. Hans Goldschmidt’s personal files that he felt should be preserved. They stayed in a closet in Dayton for over 30 years until I scanned them in 2018.
Early Greenie Manuals are there, but there are a number of versions I am still seeking to preserve. If yours is different than the ones I have restored already and you want to share, scan individual pages to JPG at 300 dpi in color if you wish to submit them.
Email them to ShopsmithHistorian@gmail.com
. That email is not a communication email that I answer, just receive file submissions for restorations.
Welcome to the Family,In the 1954+ Mark 5 folder you may find the exploded parts list of the headstock which I reoriented of particular use in visualizing how the headstock goes together. I have done similar drawings for other models in that form, even the bandsaw etc. You just have to look about some to find them all.
The Buying a Used Shopsmith PDF on the main page was my first file submission to these forums when I joined in March 2015. I had over 40 years Shopsmith experience at the time I found these forums and connected with the late Bill Mayo. Since that time I have found other friends and mentors here who have helped me acquire the collection of information I have restored and shared.
Blessings in your journey here,
