owner raves about simplicity of
his MARK V
of Windsor, CT writes...
"When I became serious about purchasing a Shopsmith MARK V, several of
my friends felt that the unit was too complicated, too difficult to set
up & adjust and the idea of several tools in one unit was just to awkward.
Well, today, they're
singing another tune ! They've seen my MARK V in action and I've made
believers out of all of them ! That business about the MARK V being difficult
to set up is NONSENSE ! I keep all the accessories near my machine and
am able to change modes in a few minutes."
replaces MARK V with radial arm saw and quickly recognizes the "error
of his ways"

"I've been wanting to write for a long time to let you know how much I
enjoy working with my Shopsmith MARK V. This is my third machine, having
started with a model 10-ER, then later a MARK V along with the Jointer
attachment. Then, for some reason, I began to think that I would be better
off with a radial arm saw, so I sold my MARK V and bought one. I kept
it for a while, but soon learned that it could not even begin to compare
with the overall benefits of the MARK V when it comes to doing the complete
job. So, in 1971, I purchased another MARK V. Thanks again for a great
home workshop, a fine magazine and service that's hard to beat!"
appreciates "Royal Treatment" he gets from Shopsmith
of Plano, TX writes…
"Thanks for turning my leisure time into my most relaxing and often profitable
time during the week. It wasn't so much your very knowledgeable sales
representative, as it was your precision-engineered MARK V that beckoned
my undivided attention as I saw my first MARK V demonstration. I'd like
to say thank you for the most precise, versatile workhorse of a machine
that could ever enter a home. I have no fear that I'll ever be without
an answer to a problem or question. I've been treated like a friend rather
than just a customer!"
V "makes money" for family
of Barstow, CA writes…
"The MARK V makes us money. Plus, my wife is talking about a new dining
table, coffee table, end tables, and the list is endless. I honestly believe
she would sell anything (including the furniture we own) before she would
agree to sell the MARK V. Why? Well, we can make our own furniture ! Case
in point: this weekend during her yard sale, she sold the coffee table
and end tables from the living room. My next project ? You guessed it
Wife realizes her woodworking ambition
Lando & Rhoda
Bohnsack of Emily, MN writes…
"We are retired. I farmed in southern Minnesota and my wife, Rhoda, was
a nurse. She always wanted to do woodworking when she retired, so we bought
a Shopsmith MARK V two years ago. We both just love it !"
