Officially retired from repairing Shopsmith Mark V headstocks

Posted by Jacob Anderson on

After about 13 years of specializing in rebuilding Shopsmith Mark V headstocks, I have retired this year. I rebuilt over 1800 of the machines in that time. I have sold parts to do it yourselfers for several years now and will continue to do so. Everything sold here is the exact same as I used in repairs so I can vouch for the quality. I scaled back my repairs in 2019 due to debilitating arthritis and other pain and strength issues, and my conditions worsened to the point I dont have strength or dexterity enough to perform these involved repairs. My final repairs were in April 2020 and it doesn't seem like there will be any improvement anytime soon so it is time to go ahead and retire.
