My troubleshooting guide for the Shopsmith Mark V headstock


Here are some useful, frequently requested pdf instruction sheets from Shopsmith made available for customers' convenience.

High speed adjustment on the Mark V speed control

(Note: I believe it is more important to set the Slow speed correctly, and only set the high speed stop to prevent metal clatter from the control sheave hitting the speed control body. Thus, I recommend setting the high speed stop set around T or U. See my videos.)
