A Bit About Me

I am a NASA electrical engineer. I retired a few years ago and moved to the Albuquerque, NM area. In my spare time I have been repairing and servicing Shopsmith for over 20 years.  Now I am doing it full time in my new shop. Whether it is a Shopsmith Mark V or Shopsmith Power Pro headstock, I can fix it and save you money in the process. Shopsmith is a great woodworking tool and it is built to last. All it needs is the right precise adjustment and it can run forever.  Give me a call and see for yourself. You can be assured that you will get:

  • Straight talk, good old-fashioned customer service.
  • I respond to every email or phone call.
  • Attention to detail using engineering specifications.
  • I use original genuine Shopsmith replacement parts.
  • Fast turn around repair time.
  • Ask me about pre owned Shopsmith replacement parts and accessories.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. No obligation.

I don’t just fix Shopsmith. I actually have one and I use it often to build things. I built this gate as a gift for my neighbor, Joyce B., for her husband’s 75th birthday.
