Managed to buy a second Shopsmith, mainly for the accessories that were included with it. But what to do with the main unit? Well, this may seem sacrilegious to some, but without the room for two Shopsmiths in the workshop, but greatly valuing its facility as a drill press, I decided to set it in concrete!
The tubes have been greased and wrapped in cellophane, so in theory it should be possible to pull them out!
The surface is level and next to my bench. I have retained the form work because I filled the bottom half of the void with off cuts of chipboard to economise on concrete. There is still room to fit the little bandsaw partly beneath the Shopsmith table (not shown)
