I did some Internet research and apparently there are some Youtube videos and instructions out there on how to rebuild the powerhead yourself. I haven’t watched them yet, but I think I’ll give it a try. There are a few ads out there in various places selling Shopsmith’s with the same accessories for the $1,000 range. I haven’t gone down and picked this unit up yet, but I have seen it and I know it’s a clean unit. It needs some elbow grease, but it’s a lot nicer looking than a lot of these I have seen out there for sale.

And my second option is I can buy the new $2,000 digital powerhead from Shopsmith and put it on my current Shopsmith, and then take the powerhead from my current unit and put it on this one and then try and sell it for $1000.
