I'm just curious how many forumite know...

I've encountered a varying level.

My sister's "X" has one. I didn't like it too much. It does a whole bunch of stuff OK, but none of it great.

thanks guys!


Picked up a 10ER for $25 at GoodWill (of all places)

Turns out from the Shopsmith forums, that it dates from the second year they were ever made --1949

It's an original and extremely vintage Magna Engineering 10ER model, with all the pieces except for the blades and bits.
Those, I'm getting on Ebay slowly but surely.
I've got about $100 invested now, and the prices I'm seeing for SS10ERs in this condition are upwards of $350.

It'll be a better drill press than anything I have now - that's for sure, and most definitely quite the sanding gear.

I also got a 1932 Companion (pre-Craftsman) bandsaw for $25 that day.
If I can hook the two together some way, I can have a very useful single-piece of gear equipment.

I also have an early 70s Craftsman 60"x36" deck table saw -- that mother is ENORMOUS - weighs over 200lbs
I tend to agree with Lib, for the most part, though the space savings may make the Shopsmith useful, the Craftsman
is a FAR better table saw ==

Having looked online we would call something like this a workbench in the UK.
