I dont know how old an entry by PG zac is but I recently acquired a Taiwan clone shopsmith, lying in the neighbours yard goinjg to the scrap deal , I acquired it in exchange for a few $$. the speed adjuster was broken , so i carved out out of some duralium and a friend cut the correct teeth . I bought a couple of belts while on a trip to the Philippines and been repainting all the various components I have run the unit up and so far looking promising . Only got 1 arbour with the machine minus the nut which I have since machined . would like some info on the sawbench crosscut fence , the locking mechanism is missing . Fortunatley I have some good machine tools and can make the correct item at 81 I find this sort of restoration a challenge morseman
