Wondering if anyone out here has the old style lower saw guard that they would be willing to part with. I have a Mark V that the lower saw guard collar is cracked and would like to replace it. part number on it 506156. The only thing to this point that I have had an issue with. So far this machine has been great, one other part missing but have yet to check every nook and cranny is the rip fence guide on the front of the table.

Lot of them on ebay

Yep of course ebay, lets say I have had trust issues with that site before, besides the fact that I know that there are other sawdusters out there that have upgraded a shopsmith and just might not have gotten around to getting rid of the old parts.
from what i have found that is where I will go, besides that I might be able to pick up a few upgrades myself.

Char, I feel your pain with eBay. I simply won’t use it since I got an account emptied on a hack years back, selling my wife’s Barbie collection. And in the last year a fellow luthier friend of mine sold a violin over eBay, and the customer complained about it. My friend simply said he would pay to ship it back and credit the guy. He credited him, and my friend got a box of rocks back. Luckily, the guy was only one state over. My friend packed his concealed carry firearm, went to Alabama to the town, got the sherriff, and they confronted the guy who finally gave up the violin to my friend. Needless to say, no one paid for his gas, or the day he lost as his shop was closed for business that day.

Who needs that kind of headache?
