I am located in the Norfolk, VA area.
I am the only experienced, serious independent repair technician specializing in Shopsmith Mark V headstocks. I don’t know of and can’t recommend anyone in other areas so plan to ship it to me.
Travelers and owners wishing to bring their Mark V headstock to me for service can set an appointment ahead of time. I don’t keep regular days or hours, so an appointment is necessary. Every month, I have a customer travelling to me from as far as a few states away.
See this website for tons of info to help you troubleshoot and solve many common problems, and how to maintain the headstock properly.
Sometimes, it’s just best to hire an expert!
