Shopsmith made an announcement on their forum today that the new PowerPro is getting ever closer to the production date. Following is a copy of what was posted on the Shopsmith Site.
EXCITING NEWS FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT SHOPSMITH
I have an update regarding some FANTASTIC news for all current Shopsmith MARK V Owners, as well as those of you who may have considered adding a MARK V to your home workshops.
A new, updated MARK V Headstock is coming soon!
As always, this new Shopsmith product will be Spectacular
First and foremost, Shopsmith’s policy has always been to deliver ONLY top-quality products. Shopsmith Tool owners already know this. Many of you own 30, 40 or even 50+ year-old machines that are still delivering great woodworking results, often with ZERO parts failures.
With Quality as our watchword, we’ve tested and re-tested the PowerPro under stringent standards that even the highest-end competitive machines would have trouble passing… and put it through multiple rounds of revisions and upgrades over the past year or so to ensure that it’s the absolute best product we can produce!
During this developmental phase, some new technologies have been introduced that we’ve been able to incorporate into the PowerPro. Their discovery and eventual incorporation into this new product have also caused some added delays along the way… but you can take my word that although the delays have been longer than we would have liked, the results will be well worth your wait.
You will be able to upgrade your current MARK V to this new technology
Here’s what our MARK V Owners have been asking for
