A few weeks back I picked up a used Shopsmith at an auction site. It came with a bandsaw and jointer and is in decent shape. It appears to be an 80’s model. Anyway I only bought it because the opening bid was $100 and nobody else bid. So I’m into it for $110 which includes the auction house fee. There is something wrong with the motor, but I don’t know what. When you plug it in the motor runs, but something is bogging it down. It could be as simple as just needing a new drive belt, or it could be something more complex.
Anyway, I intended to buy it and fix it up and then resell it, but now that I have it I lost interest in doing that and I have some other business ventures I’m working on. So I’d like to get this thing out of my shop. So if somebody is interested in it, for $110 it’s all yours. All I’m asking is what I have into it and that you come pick it up. If you want me to ship it I can do that, but you would have pay shipping and packaging charges and I’m sure that would be expensive.
My shop is in Tracy, CA. Let me know if anybody on here is interested and I’ll go take some photos and post them. The bandsaw and jointer attachments are worth over $100 each alone, but I don’t want to part the thing out so it’s an all or nothing deal.
