I have been a hobby woodworker since I graduated from high school in 1957. Most of that time, I have had some sort of wood shop that I moved every time I moved. I did that a lot during my 23 years in the USAF.
Before I retired from the AF, I purchased my Shopsmith Mark V Model 510 along with most of the Special Purpose Tools (attachments) that Shopsmith offers. Being something of a tool junkie, I have added many "must have items" to that collection.
I chose the Shopsmith primarily because I had to "keep it small and keep it mobile". I am no longer as mobile as I once was and I am no longer so cramped in a small shop but I am addicted. I would not give up my Shopsmith now unless I was told that I could never cut, sand or drill another piece of wood in my lifetime.
Medical conditions keep me from building much any more but I still enjoy my time in the shop. I tinker a lot and I still make a bit of saw dust but not like I once did. I do find solace in the shop.
Even though I do longer use it as I once did, I could not give it all up because I have groomed three potential shop owners of my own. The kids and grand kids don't use the shop like I had hoped but it'll always be there for them.
The Shopsmith equipment is all quality built and is well designed for the small work shop. As such I would expect that this shop will be serviceable for many, many years to come. A bit of lubrication, some cleaning and some tlc is all that is required to keep it humming.
