Hello, My name is Kirk,
I bought a 1982 Shopsmith Mark V 500 this April (2019) for $200.00. It came with a band saw, 4” jointer, belt sander, discs sander, drum sander, a dado set, a molder head and few molding knifes, routing bits, a hardwood miter gauge extension, 5 lathe chisels, 3 3/4” faceplate, 3 lathe centers, shopsmith center finder, self study course binder, and a few non- shopsmith tools. Was missing the upper saw guard, power tool woodworking textbook, and the tool rest for the lathe.
I wanted one since I was in High school ( 88-92 ). During one of the summer breaks I help a fellow move from Pleasant Mount, PA over to just below Deposit, NY , he had a Mark V ??? . He was sell log cabin kits. Don’t remember how I got the job. I believe shortly after see his Mark V I saw the ad for them in the Popular Mechanic magazine, I sent for a brochure and still have it.
I had requested a new brochure this year after buying my Mark V 500.
I have also Bought a Mark V 520 table system in pieces, a extra 510 saw table, a shopsmith support table 510, a Ringmaster 2, a Dial Indicator Gauge, a flex shaft with a grinding wheel, a metal lathe cutter, a Conical sanding disc, a planer / jointer knife sharpener, and a 2 bearing quill I put in on 8/11/19 from eBay.
Bought the six disc Shopsmith Mark V video encyclopedia . I’ve also order the Premium Caster Upgrade, and the Shopsmith help kit with Journals DVD for my shopsmith.
I had wood shop, power shop, one year of metal shop, and a year of drafting in high school not sure what I all remember a what I’ve forgotten.
For the last six years I’ve been slow remodeling the house trailer we live in. Well that’s enough for now.
