Here are the 3 accessories I made to help use the 56 ‘greenie’ Shopsmith as my lathe – tool holder, platform and leg extensions. Leg extensions brought the lathe up to a height I like and the castors make it much more mobile in my shop. Added a straight throw lever on the right end to stop it rolling while turning. I used some scrapwood to make the platform and tool holder.
I inherited the Shopsmith from my dad. It was in sad shape having set many years in an unheated chicken house that Dad converted to his shop.
