Im not sure, but I think you would get more responses if you posted this as a forum question.

Good Luck!

Maybe you could check craigslist and ebay and see what others are going for.

The value is whatever you can get for the machine. In this depression someone might be looking and have
money, or no one near you might be looking. I bought mine for $250 several years ago. I have seen others
listed for $2500 and higher, do not know if they got their price. Do not know if this will help or not.

Post some pics of the machine with attachments (not all necessarily mounted). There are a lot of Shop Smith users on this site perhaps they can be of help.

Define all, there are 100’s of attachments and at least 1/2 a dozen special purpose tools (jointer, jig saw, bandsaw, belt sander, strip sander…). Pricing is all over the map, you usually will get the most by parting out the machine and selling the parts on eBay the whole machine is usually too heavy to ship. There are also at least 5 major models (10ER, 500, 510, 510, PowerPro) some worth much more than others.

Pictures and details will help also look on Craig’s List at any time you will usually find several for sale locally.
