This Warranty Agreement and Service Terms & Conditions document is intended for adult woodworkers who seek to have their Shopsmith headstock repaired to original factory specifications without complications.

About Who is Doing the Repair 

As a retired NASA engineer with over 30 years of experience restoring and rebuilding Shopsmith machines, I am committed to providing the highest quality repair services. My goal is to rebuild your machine to its optimal condition, ensuring it looks and functions like new. My passion is to help you enjoy using your Shopsmith safely for many years to come. If you have a sentimental attachment to your machine beyond its utilitarian function, please inform me upfront so I can handle it with the utmost care. Please note, as an old, retired NASA engineer, I do Shopsmith repair to keep my mind active. I have limited tolerance for unnecessary drama or unreasonable demands.

Warranty Agreement

We guarantee 100% customer satisfaction and are dedicated to resolving any issues that may arise during the repair process. Our straightforward warranty agreement and service terms & conditions are written in clear and concise language to avoid misunderstandings and save both parties time, frustration, and money.

Warranty Coverage

Our warranty covers two types of repair conditions:

A. Repaired Headstock:

  • Your repaired headstock is covered for 1 year for parts and labor starting from the day you receive your machine.

  • Any damage during shipping is covered by FedEx ground insured shipping.

  • If your machine needs repair during the warranty period, simply contact us to obtain an RMA number and ship it back for a free repair. You are only responsible for shipping costs.

  • This warranty does not cover the electrical motor unless the motor was repaired with the headstock.

  • If the electric motor was repaired during the same time as the headstock, it is covered for 90 days from the day it was received by the customer.

  • There is no warranty for any other electrical components since parts can fail due to age, voltage spikes, lightning strikes, shop wiring issues, etc.

  • This warranty is void if you tamper with or make any unauthorized disassembly or adjustments to the machine without my approval or guidance.

  • You are responsible for the shipping cost.

B. Replacement Headstock:

  • If you purchase a replacement headstock, it is covered by a 1-year warranty on mechanical parts and a 90-day warranty on the electrical motor from the day you receive it.

  • Contact us to obtain an RMA number and ship it back for a free repair. You are only responsible for shipping costs.
