I know several jocks have done great restorations on Shopsmiths, so I’m hopeful someone can help me with my simple question.
I recently bought a Mark V off Craigslist. The motor would only hum, so I got it for a song.
Long story short, I’ve got the thing running (like a champ, I think), but I’m concerned about the wire routing inside the headstock. Currently, everything is sort of just hanging out in there, I don’t see any retainers or anything to keep them out of the way of moving parts and I imagine it’s only a mater of time before something goes wrong…
So, can someone explain the proper wire routing/securing between the motor and the switch? Are there supposed to be retainer clips or zip ties or what?
Thanks in advance.
