When I started into woodworking I too looked for a Shopsmith, but didn’t like the idea of having to change the machine around to use different tools. There are times were you need to preserve a setting on your table saw, do another operation on a different machine and come back to the t.s. exactly where you last set it. This applies to other machines as well. You also have to look at time. How much shop time will you realistically have? How much of that time do you want to spend in setting up and breaking down the machine? This is a hard earned lesson that I keep in mind as I design my shop – what needs to be setup and what can be setup when needed, what needs to be mobile, what can be fixed, what can be stored and what has to be available.
