Not a worry - Solid advice!
That's as close to what I can tell he did. The gent I picked this up from mentioned he had used the ss all of 3 times that entire year to turn stuff. I guess he and his son went through a phase with it, and fell out of favor.
The confounding thing about it to me is - I've gone through all the parts he gave me and there are random pieces to other equipment everywhere! I assume he must have bought this off another SS user who sold an extra or something.
My MKV came with the actual jointer and the bandsaw attachments - but has extra parts for the belt sander, the scroll saw, I think an upgraded 510 dust assy for something, a pully for something, a super tiny grinding/polishing wheel, and some really old documents to include the v1 issue of a shop smith magazine.
Speaking of - I can't tell if the schematics are saying I'm missing an important piece or just a cover for when the jointer is used on a stand... It seems so flimsy to have only a single mounting piece be the trunion. I cant seem to find many photos of th eback of the jointer, any thoughts?
P.S. @ JPG Thanks for the compliment! I'm a designer by day so graphics are in my wheelhouse. Which speaking of, I'd love to help out the community however I can, are there any graphics / manuals / ref charts that would benefit from being recreated/restored?
