Shopsmith Mk V Planer service & overhaul


If your planer is being sent in with a known major problem please make sure to discuss this before shipping your item.

Pro Planers will need to be dis-assembled from the stand and drive motor before shipping.

Planer stands and motors will usually only need to be blown through with compressed air as these motors go on and on and on.



This service is for both the Mk V mounted and Pro Planer models.The service will include a complete strip down and inspection of all working parts. All items will be checked for damage and fully cleaned and lubricated ready before re-assembly. The tolerances of all bearings will be carried out in the motor drive train including the checking of the Infeed and outfeed roller assemblies. The same will be done for the Planer blades assembly to ensure smooth operation. The speed control motor assembly is very easily damaged in transit so make sure this is taken off before BEFORE you damage it. 


If you have a Shopsmith Planer when was it last serviced?

In fact, if you bought it secondhand, has it EVER been serviced?

As the official UK Service Centre we have the expertise to carry out this work.

I have had training by the UK Shopsmith expert, who has now retired, and have a supply of the requisite spares available to be able to carry out this task.

My workshop has the requisite factory jigs and tools plus all the technical manuals for this task.

It makes sense to have your machine serviced, you do it for your car without thinking.

A few things NOT to do.

  1. Wait until it goes wrong.
  2. Strip it apart when it does, and have no idea how to re-assemble it.
  3. Struggle with deteriorating finish, hoping it will get better. (it won't!)
  4. Wonder why it doesn't sound as smooth as it used to.
  5. Worry about that slight burning smell as the planer bogs down.
