For all shopsmith owners. If you have a problem with your shopsmith motor and it needs to be replace, I have the replacement motor for you. Shopsmith mark V has four types of motor witch are all interchangeable, be it 3/4 hp or 1 1/8 hp. If you have a bad motor I can help. What I do is rebuild shopsmith motors. I disasassemble, clean, change bearings, check windings, replace keyway on shaft, if the shave is bad I replace it, reasassemble and test run. I run the motors for 1 hr. and test for rpm, noise, and heat. Each motor will have a spec sheet of all the test reselts for that motor. If you need help contact me at http://lumbrjocks.com/squeaky

Can you also rewind motors? I took my motor to a electric motor repair shop and was told that is was burned out and needed to be replaced.

No I don’ rewind motors. It is true it cost more to have it rewound then to buy a rebuilt. As far as the price of my motors it depends on what I had to put into them and what they cost to buy. They will run between $150 and $200. that is with the shave and an 90 day warranty. Shop smith wants over $400. for their motors and that doesn’t include the shave.
Shop smith motor are special you just cant replace them with any motor. They are made special for Shop Smith.

Hi Squeaky, I’m interested in a new motor. Managed to burn up my windings (confirmed by disassembly). Are you still rebuilding? I have some spare parts I can probably send your way if you want them.

Thanks.

What model(s) does that apply to? When I bought the Shopsmith 10ER it came with a Craftsman motor on it that worked rather nicely, and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t original to the tool.

Are you still rebuilding motors for Shopsmiths. I have a 1 1/8 from the early 80’s that just smokes and hum.

Patrick,I don’t rebuild motors if you think your having motor or bearing trouble it’s cheaper to replace the motor with a new one than have it rebuilt.Plus you will have the warranty with the new motor will have a 2 to 5 year warranty a rebuilt motor will only have about a year warranty. Good luck greg

All of the model 500, 510 and 520 Shopsmith motors are built especially for Shopsmith. The 1 1/8 HP motors are built on an elongated 48 frame. You cannot purchase them “off the shelf” from a electrical motor distributor. To their credit, Shopsmith still furnishes replacement motors. You can buy them with the sheave and return spring on the shaft, which is a difficult DIY job.

The earlier ER models used a standard 1/2 HP motor. The rather rare Mark Seven apparently used a DC motor.

Those who are in need of a new motor should take a look at the new Power Pro drive. This is a fantastic power plant that puts the Shopsmith at a whole new high level of performance. Your existing headstock can accommodate this DVR motor and controller in a DIY package. It is expensive, but those who make this change never look back.
