I am new to this so bare with me. When I first discovered all the information about woodworking on the internet I was really overwhelmed. When I saw everyones shops with Powermatic and Delta tools I felt like I had a substandard shop. I have mostly tools from yard sales and flea markets. In 1986 I bought a new Shopsmith Mark V 500. Which I love and still have. I also have another one that I have rebuilt. Everyone on Lumber Jocks has made me feel so welcome. I have posted 3 projects and all the comments have been very nice. I am so glad to be a part of Lumber Jocks. Thanks to all.

My father had a Shopsmith (1960s era) that I think me and my brothers got the biggest kick out of just trying all of the options. Lot of sawdust made to master a different process we really didn’t need at the time. My favorite, although never much good, was the lathe option.

The lathe option is ok for me,but I have to hang 2 concrete blocks on it to add some weight and dampen the vibrations. I am still learning how to use the tools properly
