Nice project from the green legs I get the feeling this isn’t it first upgrade. LOLI’ve got two SS’s one cut down to be a full time drill press.

Very cool. I love it when all the stuff you need is near by and accessible!! Those doors will keep the chips out too!!

Thanks for the kind words! This was my first cabinet of any kind, and while there’s certainly room for improvement, I’m really happy with the overall results.
htl – Yeah, the machine I originally bought was a ‘53 or ‘56 greenie (can’t remember year off the top of my head). I got the 520 table/fence upgrade a few months later, then bought a ‘92 headstock (as that turned out to be cheaper than overhauling the old one). Just a few months ago, I upgraded to the PowerPro headstock. Soon I’ll be getting the dual tilt upgrade. Then, other than the legs being green, it will be a full Mark 7.

That extra weight is going to be really handy for stability when I start turning, too!

Congrats on ‘building this. Most people even some owners never heard of the Hands On magazine from ShopSmith. I have built this and just had to go back to the tool shelf. But I made my own arrangement after seeing the board for sale. Please go to my home page and projects to see my ShopSmith outfeed table…hope you like it. I have owned my 20 years and upgraded features and moved in 3 shops ( read my home page.) I am interested in the upgrade to the powerpro and saw the live demo. Even was at Shopsmith for 2 classes for furniture when they had those… call them and get your free customer number…???

The customer number is useful for using all the resources available on their web-site, though you can just register on-line if you don’t want to call in.
I looked at doing the accessory shelf originally, but I ended up liking the added capacity of the cabinet, even if I have to stoop down sometimes to get at stuff.
The PowerPro is absolutely fantastic, and I would highly recommend making that upgrade!
