OK, I’ll dive in. What is a FOX super shop? Pics wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

Dwain,
The Fox Super Shop was an attempt by a Fellow named Tony Fox to make an industrial Shopsmith-type multitool that could be used for wood and metal. The endeavor ran int financial trouble and after years (20+ if memory serves me) it was simplified a bit in China and reintroduced as the Super Shop by Smithy. Not long after they started showing up under other names at such places as Menards and Harbor Freight. You’ll find them from time to time under the brand name Iron Wood and the Central Machinery 10-in-1 Woodworking Machine.

A bit more info can be found here: http://www.tool-hunter.com/shopsmith-posts/non-shopsmith-combination-woodworking-tools-excluding-shopsmith-clones-/super-shop-fox-smith-and-others-

Where would I find information about selling one? My friend passed recently and his widow has asked me to help her clean up the garage. I want to make sure she doesn’t get cheated. He took very nice care of his tools and his Super Shop includes the bandsaw attachment.

Have your say...
