I've had one for a number of years. It is a nice machine and very versatile. It’s really nice if you have a small shop area. The biggest drawback as I see it, is having to change from one set up to another. But again if you have limited space it is ideal. It does require a 30 amp breaker. Runs fine on a 20 amp but on start up, or if you have a bind it pulls extra current and the 20 amp may trip.
I've had a shopsmith for several years. It's very versatile and allowed me to make eveything I've wanted to make and i haven't really used it to its full potential.Now that I'm retiring, I'm going to do even more with it. I've made furniture, rocking horses, jewelry boxes, shelves, lawn furniture, picture frames, plant stands, wooden bowls, etc. It's been great for me.

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
