Putting together my new larger CNC has forced me to get rid of some things for lack of space.  My Shopsmith Mark V was bought new in 1984, and kept in the basement since then.  Basically the last 30 years it went unused.  Has all the attachments and runs great.

Original invoice was $2400.  The turning tools are still in their box with the wax still on the tips.  It has absolutely no rust, and comes with the original manuals.  I made some pretty neat things the few years I played with it, before work and stuff put my ww on hold.  Located in north Detroit suburbs.  Have no idea what to even ask so I'll just throw out a number -- $800.

Different regions command different prices. You may be a tad high but, you're in the ball park. Any accessories besides the lathe equipment?

I got the whole package that was offered at the time. Band saw, jointer, belt sander, table extender, and whatever came with it.  Best feature of all is the horizontal drill press.

Well, now. That is a different ball game. Please allow me to revise my first comments.

You've got about $12-$1500 there. Ask $1500 and negotiate. I'd be very firm at $1000...absolute bare minimum.

John, tell them it’s $1500, and you’ll throw in a cnc made project as a sweetener, LOL.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
