Interesting but... Lots of questions. Do you need a SS PowerPro to start with? If not whose motor and controller is this guy using? If you do need a SS power pro then you have to buy this guys controller for more money. Why? He has no web site so why would one promote this without a web site and an offer to sell his product?
I don't see anything better than the SS unit. You can buy an after market stop switch pretty cheap so that is a non starter. Why would I want a knob for speed control as opposed to a push button? His remote is interesting but it does not have a readout for the speed so I still have to look under the table to set the speed I want. So I may as well push the speed buttons while I am looking under the table to see the speed setting with the remote.
I have to think SS will have something to say about this if it ever goes forward more than the video.
The control panel looks to be stock Nova, though the case is rearranged so the screen is below the controls, no doubt the motor and remote are also. One would have to wonder if the controls have been programed and tweaked for the Shopsmith like the Power Pro is. https://www.teknatool.com/product/nova-dvr-upgrade-for-1624/

I would suspect not.
In his first video he said he had been a commercial banker for 30 years, one could wonder how much use he would be for technical support.
