    The Shopsmith sounds like a really nice multipurpose toy that definitely has an appeal to some but not for others. Isn't that the way it is with so many tools?! Not having had one though, it's intriguing to hear about it. Thanks guys!

    I was thinking new when I said expensive. I've seem them on eBay and Craigslist for a lot less. The machines can last a long time if they are well cared for. As I got the stand alone tools mine finally wound up being a table saw. When the aluminum table on it finally warped to badly to get the precision...

    I have all the stand alone tools: Cabinet saw, band saw planer, drill press, etc. I paid $125 for my Shopsmith and is a great variable speed utility tool. I really like it using it for various sanding operations. But you have to have the space for it.

    I'm with Rolf, I'm just NOT organized enough to use one. I have a good friend that has a beautiful BIG workshop separate from the house. It is completely finished off inside, has bathroom with shower, a separate utility type room with big sink, exhaust fan, the whole place is heated,, a woodworkers...

    My dad had one, I never planed my projects well enough to use a a multifaceted tool like this. As soon as it was set up for a drill press I would need the saw.

    First, a Shopsmith is not very expensive. They are available on Craigslist for not too much. I do not use one for a scroll saw or table saw. But it powers my homemade toastmasters, works as a lathe, disk sander pneumatic drum sander, and many more. It is a great utility tool to adapt to many thi...

    No, Thanks. I used a ShopSmith for almost 30 years, but everything it did has been replaced with a stand alone tool. They are really good (albeit expensive) machines for folks with really limited space, or folks that move around a lot I got mine while I was in the Army - it followed me around for 12...

    tgoro01 -- He indicated it is a freestanding scrollsaw. Said it runs well. But he's gotten older and decided it's time to evaluate how much time he spends on each hobby and narrow down the variety so he can get back some elbow space. Decided trains takes precedence since he plays with those weekly...

    When you say it that way, it doesn't seem so bad :-). I hope they really are better. It still takes quite a while to wear out the older style clamps, so assuming the Pegas clamps work great out of the gate, it will take some time to determine if they last as long.

    I heard back from D&D...

    Randy,

    I bought my EX21 about three years ago. I have already replaced the jaws once and I am about ready for another replacement. Considering the that frequency of replacement. $90 dollars is a bargain.....
