Shopsmith Mark 7

      An Introduction To Multi-Purpose Tool Woodworking

 An American Classic since 1953

This model for the UK will come with the Premium casters as standard    

      The predecessor of today's revolutionary Shopsmith Mark 7 (the legendary 5-tools-in-1 Shopsmith Mark V) was the world's original multi-purpose  woodworking machine. Since its introduction in 1953, a series of important improvements have been made to the Mark V, including:    

  • An upgrade from a 3/4 hp Motor to a 1-1/8 hp motor, providing added power
  • An upgrade from a single bearing quill to a 2-bearing quill reducing run-out & wobble
  • The introduction of new, larger table systems for added workpiece support & operator convenience
  • Larger, easier-to-operate rip fences with built-in fixturing accommodations
  • A new removable safety switch
  • & ...and many other smaller improvements for added safety         & working convenience

     Over 600,000 Mark V's have been sold world-wide since 1953... and today,     most of them are still serving their owners, just as they did when they     were new.     

Today's Mark 7 represents the Ultimate Shopsmith Upgrade, supported by the amazing new PowerPro Headstock and including two more of the most needed woodworking tools in a single, compact package    

     With Shopsmith's latest Mark 7 machine, you get a 10 Table Saw - 34 Lathe - 12 Disc Sander - 16-1/2 Vertical Drill Press Over/Under-Table Router Over/Under Table Shaper and Horizontal Boring Machine in an amazingly  small two-foot by six-foot space. Just tuck it snugly away in a corner of the garage or basement until it's needed then pull it out to go to     work.    

     And, if you don't need the added advantages provided by the PowerPro Headstock... or the included capabilities of an over/under table shaper and router, we still offer two tried-and-true Mark V versions that include all five of the other tool capabilities listed above.     

Easy to use - switches from tool-to-tool in 98 seconds or less

     And remember too that you don't have to be an experienced woodworker to produce top-notch results with ANY version of the Shopsmith Multi-Purpose Woodworking System. Thanks to their multi-purpose design, you need only learn a single set of controls to operate all the basic functions of the Mark V or Mark 7... and switching from tool-to-tool is     practically instantaneous.

Over or Under Table Operation

Over table drill press operation

The original Shopsmith Mark V has only tilted to the right... allowing only over-table routing, shaping and drum sanding... the new Shopsmith Mark 7 has been designed to tilt left or right ...allowing both over and under table routing, shaping and drum Sanding, and enabling it to take full advantage of all the enhanced capabilities provided by the revolutionary new Shopsmith PowerPro® motor and headstock.

Since its introduction, the Shopsmith Mark V has always offered over-table operation of these functions... however, some woodworkers prefer the under-table approach... feeling that having the bit or cutter under the workpiece keeps the hands out of harm's way and actually protects them from potential injury. If you agree with this, the new, tilt-both-ways Shopsmith Mark 7 lets you have your choice.

Under table shaper operation

Being able to switch between over and under-table operation also gives you three other options that you don't get with Mark V's:

 

  1. You can change your workpiece feed direction to whatever is comfortable for you by switching from over to under-table operation
  2. Under-table operation allows you to work more efficiently by setting your depth-of-cut just once when making internal cuts

    For example, if you're shaping or drum sanding the internal edges of a series of identical picture frames or similar projects, you can use the under-table approach and set your cut depth just once. Then you can switch from workpiece-to-workpiece by simply dropping your stock over the protruding bit, cutter or drum and performing your operation. If you were using an over-table set-up, you would have to move your spindle up or down and then reset your depth-of-cut each time you changed workpieces. Not so with an under-table set- up.

  3. Since the rotating bit or cutter projects up from beneath the workpiece, under-table operation allows you to position your hands where required without interference from the bit or cutter. So, you can exert more down-force on your stock during operation than you could with the bit in your way on top of the workpiece, and therefore, usually achieve greater precision on your cuts. And, by the way, this same scenario holds true for drum sanding operations.

However, although many woodworkers believe that the under-table approach is best, simply because it's more conventional, many Mark V owners believe that the over-table approach is best because it allows the rotating bit or cutter to always be in full view, making it easier and potentially more precise when making stop-cuts (such as for mortises) or for routing to drawn lines. Fortunately, the new Mark 7 allows you to select the approach that you like best.

So, what's involved in making the switch?

Changing the Mark 7 from over-table to under-table operation is simple.

Step One: Remove the worktable from the table carriage

Step Two: Rotate the worktable 180° and replace it in the table carriage

Step Three: Loosen the horizontal lock

Step Four: Tilt machine into vertical position and lock the base arm locking knob
