Figure 1-15. The Shopsmith Sharpening Guide.

Grinding and sharpening accessories such as the Grinding Wheel (Figure 1-14) and the Sharpening Guide (Figure 1-15) will enable you to sharpen lathe chisels, shaper cutters, and jointer and planer knives. Sharp tools are very important. They cut easily and more accurately, and are safer to use.

Figure 1-17. The Shopsmith Routing System.

When you add the specialty machines--Lathe Duplicator, Biscuit Joiner, Routing System and Strip Sander--you are set for practically any operation. The lathe duplicator (Figure 1-16) lets you make identical turnings such as matching table legs or spindles for a railing quickly and accurately. You can also do freehand turning. The routing system (Figure 1-17) helps you create duplicate work-pieces with the use of fixtures and templates. It is also used for creat-ing decorative surfaces and edges on workpieces and many types of joinery. The strip sander (Figure 1-18) will sand the internal and external edges of projects, sharpen tools, and perform buffing operations.

Figure 1-19. The retractable casters are foot operated. They raise the machine for mobility or allow it to seat solidly on the floor.

The entire Shopsmith Wood-working System is even more appealing when retractable casters (Figure 1-19) are installed on the Mark V and Power Stands. The casters are designed for easy installation and quick positioning of the machine to be lifted either 1/4" or 1/2" off the floor. When the casters are in the neutral position, the machine rests solidly on the floor.
