My shopsmith started making a really bad noise Friday night. I didn’t get a chance to investigate until today. After poking and prodding for a bit, and taking things apart, it turns out that I have a busted speed control sheave bearing, and a cracked sheave.
Gonna cost about $60 to get new parts. Don’t supposed any of you have one of these laying around anywhere that I could buy for less?
Until my shopsmith is fixed, I can’t really do anything. So looks like I’m out of commission for a week or two.
