From Our Owner's
Here at Shopsmith, our mailbox is constantly stuffed with great letters from Shopsmith Power Tool Owners, talking about how they use their tools and what they think about them. Here are some excerpts from just a few of the thousands of letters we’ve received from the members of our Shopsmith Family of satisfied owners throughout the years. We hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as we have.
New York owner appreciates time spent at the Shopsmith Woodworking Academy

Indiana Woman has fond memories of her Dad and his Shopsmith
Rincon of Hammond, IN writes…
He and that machine have been inseparable all these years. He can do magic with it, making something out of nothing. I can remember wooden dogs as pull toys, lamps made out of old bowling pins that he turned on the lathe, hope chests for my sister and myself and now, his grand-daughter, tables, a sofa, a bed, a drawing desk, a drafting table for my daughter...the list of woodworking he has done is endless.
He once made an 18-foot
cabin cruiser when I was young, in the garage. I can still see him out
there working. What a lovely memory! What a job! And he couldn't have
done it without his Shopsmith. He's always been able to keep that machine
in repair and running. He's constantly adjusting or adapting it to his
needs. My dad is a very special man and your Shopsmith is a very special
machine! Thanks for making such a great product that has given my dad
so many years of good service!
Texas industrial arts teacher says his MARK V is a fantastic, "tough" machine
of Wichita Falls, TX writes...
I'm a junior high-school industrial arts teacher and each year, I've taken my Shopsmith to school and demonstrated it to my students. They find it to be an incredible tool and can't believe all it will do.
In April of 1979, a huge tornado hit Wichita Falls and wiped out my house. My Shopsmith came through the tornado with minor sheet metal damage. I cleaned it up, lubricated it, then rebuilt 175-feet of cedar fence using my Shopsmith. It's a tough machine!
Florida Man agrees -- MARK V is the best choice for those with limited space
of Miami, FL writes...
There's no doubt that I've turned many woodworkers on with Shopsmith and my old 10-ER is living proof that it can not only do most anything, but it can also take most anything...wouldn't part with mine for the World!
