Hi all, I’m a new member.
I bought a vintage Shopsmith 10E, and would like to oil, polish, refurbish however is needed, and bring it to full and happy operating status.
As far as how to do this, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I went online and got a PDF of the Operating Manual. Haven’t read it all yet, but it is here. Hints about oils, belts, polishes, etc. all appreciated.
Mine came with a (really old) jigsaw attachment, which actually looks like it was used for some of the woodworking on Noah’s Ark. Also, a (approximately) 3” tiny jointer attachment. I find nothing like it in any of the information I found elsewhere online. There were shaper bits and an adapter, as well as miter guides, live center and faceplates, etc.
So, let me know what you know. I await tons of knowledge poured out of wise old heads, and will value and use that knowledge accordingly.
