Okay, no laughing! I just acquired a Total Shop woodworking rig (somewhat of a Shopsmith clone) and it appears to be about 5 tools in one. It runs great and looks to have very little wear. I’m not sure if I will keep it, but I was wondering if anyone might know something about it or better yet, have a manual on it. From what I have read, the company is no longer in business. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks, Bob

Hey Bob, Google wasn’t much help, but you probably looked there already.
Coincidentally, I got a ShopSmith model 10er a few weeks ago, circa 1948, not a mark V for sure…and I dont’ think the parts for it swap with the TotalShop either…well, maybe a screw or bolt or something.
Good luck.

Bob,
Changed the search and got this hit.

Says he has a manual and will copy it for costs.

Pete, Where have you been? We played phone tag a month or so ago, not sure if you left me a message or how the phone tag started. Anyway, thanks for the response and good luck with your Shopsmith. A co-worker is restoring a SS that his father-in-law gave him.
Any projects going on now? I just finished my woodworking table, will shoot some pics later.

Hey Bob,
Been buying tools and working in the shop.
Started making custom Military Challenge coin holders a few weeks back…turning them on the lathe…haven’t gotten around to posting any pics.
Started a web site on google…just search for “pndswipes”...it’s the only hit you’ll get on google.
Also been turning some bowls, vases, walking canes, Christmas ornaments…not really doing much of anything hey.
