I am not in the market for a router table, I sold mine last fall, don't need one, but I just thought I'd share my amazement with what Shopsmith has available for our machines. I did not know they made a router table, very cool. Anyone own one? @Artie ?

I do not. I believe you have to supply a separate router with them, kinda makes it a separate machine.

Thanks Artie, I figured you'd have to add your own router, but the table looks like a great fit, I am assuming it mounts to it's own accessory base, and you can just hang it on the wall. Pretty durned cool.

Mine is the free standing model. It's this one.F22-01SM.jpg.cb92badd087fce88a60ea3836b4a85d3.jpg

It's called an over arm pin router. But, can be used as a normal router table with a router hung under the table. I just use the pin router function.

Note: The Mark V Router Table requires a separate router motor. The router motor must not exceed 3 hp. The router base must be round and not exceed 6-1/2-inches in diameter.

555658 Shopsmith Mark V Router Table ...    $319.90

The SS arbor is horizontal and would make it really difficult to run a router table.   They do have a router collet but it's normally use as a vertical (drill press) or horizontal (horizontal boring) mode.

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.
