Topic Discussion Board. I’m considering purchasing the ultra Shop multi-tool

Im contemplating purchasing the Super store multi-tool. I have been considering the Shopsmith, although ability to work with steel (lathe, mill, etc.) is why I am thinking about the ultra store.

Do people have experience with this device? I would really like the good and bad. Thank you for your own services.


I am the master of a Shopsmith MarkV unit 510 for around 16 ages. I additionally struggled to obtain the company during the mid 90s as nationwide deals and services manager. It is a means with several benefits and drawbacks towards program. Importance integrate adaptability and ease in animated in one function to some other and sharing of perspectives. The drill push function is quality although a tad too fast for large forstner bits additionally the band saw is great for just what it is; limited band-saw. Negatives integrate problem in adjusting to really good tolerances considering that the sleep of the dining table watched just isn’t all of that strong. (your learn how to conform to they inside method.) The lathe, while useful, was somewhat light-weight and is likely to vibrate with large turnings until you create the rate reducer (about a $300 solution) as well as the brand-new lathe device relax ($75?). The table saw along with its tilting desk is tough to reduce angles on with bigger stuff, sheet merchandise specifically.

All that mentioned, the system provides a lot more than offered my personal wants these decades and that I’ve best have one biggest maintenance, an engine replacement about three years back, a fairly straightforward Do-it-yourself task.

Would I purchase another one? I would personally basically is at alike developmental degree as then (five years in to the craft) together with limited space. The shape helps it be special for all the properties you can get. It’s just the thing for a little hobbiest working area.

We have finally been able to protected a totally free standing shop of 20 x 30 and, if funds were no item, I would getting upgrading to individual knowledge. That is not for the spending plan until once I retire so I’ll be using this for the next 15 years or so.

You will find not utilized the full Shop but had a buddy which struggled to obtain all of them. He asserted that it absolutely was better quality your level V, weighs almost double the amount, it is filled with the same dilemmas since the Mark V when working in metal, less therefore in wooden.

If you are currently rather carried out at the, you’ll be dissatisfied in a choice of if you don’t bring area limitations which require a trade off anyway.

It is like those fax, copy, printers they offer. It does many but not one of it very well. For the money you can fare better with made use of seperates and possess soemthing that can do it’s job really well. I suspect like shopsmith, merely amateurs with glazed over attention and drooling lips with over crammed wallets be seduced by these things. We however remember those hour long infomercials for the shopsmith late into the evening. For me that is a sure indication a product or service isn’t any good. I am a woodworker and steel employee for thirty things decades and imagine this is one of the worst items you can spend finances together with the least return.

Having said that if you have limited space and would like to perform tiny material and incredibly light metal services it may be all right.

If you plan on having this pastime seriously i believe you will be upset in these technology. like other individuals have said, they all render sacrifices are adaptable. The greater amount of experience you receive the greater number of dissapointed you’ll be with all the devices restrictions. If you possess the space, solitary purpose devices is a far greater financial investment.

we intend to must agree to disagree. Shopsmith has a great appliance range. Awarded they are not the very best, in all of the hardware but, these are typically more effective than some various other, appliance manufacturers.The precision and reliability, and of course accessibility, of a wide range of knowledge to do particular opportunities, enjoys kept this system line in business for almost 50 years.

I might expect any organization who is able to contend for this length of time, contrary to the commercial giants such Rockwell & General. ought to be doing something best.

All competent tradesmen have actually their personal preference as to what tools they decide on, according to task which should be accomplished.

I would suggest it isn’t the instrument that produces the artwork, it’s the people just who uses the software.

(To forestgirl, SORRY. Person that make the art.) 🙂

Really your own C.A.G.


Thanks folks for your answers. Space are my restricting element, but, after their guide, i do believe i might be better off to utilize individual machinery or maybe get a put shopsmith to complement my personal companies saw. Again thank you for your own suggestions. Walt

Any time you run blend severely view Felder, Rojek, Hammer, Knapp etc. and they also keep their unique financial investment greater. Put may be the best possible way purchase a shopsmith any time you actually must in case you may have used more brand names you are going to awfully disappointed as a whole.

We checked the Shopsmith and moved observe a demonstration at Lowes. I happened to be amazed with what they can carry out in a little space. But, I thought there might be some difficulties taking care of dating sites for 12-15 year olds bigger work and sheet goods. I became afraid that i’d quickly outgrow the shopsmith following could have an important expense in an instrument that I wasn’t making use of much. I truly failed to and have nown’t had outstanding interest in that horizontal dull or boring facet of the maker.

We got my time. Went along to estate auctions. Shopped for new products and knowledgeable myself personally on what would work for my situation in the long run. I discovered a pantry spotted, a drill press, a dust enthusiast and a 6″ jointer at under 2K. If you’d like to add the bandsaw to the shopsmith the cost due to their tiny device try close to the thing I located a 14″ noticed that i take advantage of each day within my shop. My problem ended up being i needed anything today. Over 25 years after starting woodworking I am however buying toys and contributing to the range. If you don’t have to own anything nowadays and you’ve got the room to take action I think you’ll end up pleased over time to construct a shop of individual items. If you really take care to store and google search you can easily set a fantastic store along.

Incidentally. I do bring a Shopsmith today. It had been given to me personally after a neighbors spouse passed away. We tried it as a horizontal incredibly dull equipment double since I started using it.
