The Shopsmith MARK V 520S, 10″ Table Saw has the power, speed, and accuracy your project needs to achieve precise, smooth, burn-free cuts every time.

Plus, the Shopsmith’s 10″ diameter blade and powerful motor give you an ample depth-of-cut and up to 1-1/8 HP of raw muscle to zip through stock up to 3-1/4″ thick.

Shopsmith’s quill feed feature, you can actually move the Disc up to 4-1/4″ toward or away from your stationary workpiece.

34” Lathe

Bring Out Your Inner Artist Using The Shopsmith Lathe.

Lathe woodturning is relaxing, enjoyable and gives you immediate results. Imagine the feeling of creating a beautifully crafted platter, bowl, vase or similar object on the MARK V 520S lathe that you shaped and smoothed yourself. Just apply finish and they’re ready to admire!

And, if you’re like many other woodworkers, you’ll also use the MARK V 520S lathe for those money-saving D-I-Y projects or ultimate new creations such as:

  • Chair and Table Legs
  • Spindles for Beds and Porches
  • Stair Railings
  • Posts for Fences or Mailboxes
  • Holiday and Birthday Gifts
  • And, Many Other Applications

The Full-Featured Shopsmith MARK V 520S Lathe offers generous diameter and between-center capacities, so it can handle faceplate turnings big enough to make large salad bowls or spindles long enough for table legs or stair spindles.

Shopsmith MARK V 520S
Horizontal Boring

Convenient Precision and Repeatability That Saves Time.

Horizontal Boring Machines are major time-savers for a lot of different jobs. If you don’t believe that or have never heard of a horizontal boring machine, just ask an experienced cabinetmaker. The most obvious application for this machine set-up is doweling. Tilt your worktable to 20° and you have a built-in fixture for screw pockets.

And of course, as with all operations the variable speed feature (700 to 5200 rpm) of the PowerPro Smart Motor lets you match your machine’s speed to the wood species and drill bit diameter for smoother holes without burning. Even the expensive commercial boring machines don’t offer this kind of variable speed flexibility!

  • Electronic Variable Speed
  • Large 17-1/2” x 22” Worktable Before Extensions
  • Center Drilling in the Horizontal Position
  • Horizontal Mortising Capabilities
  • Adjustable Quill Feed Depth-Of-Cut Dial and Lock
  • Included Miter Gauge and Rip Fence For Quick Fixturing

Thanks to its unique table system, the accuracy of the Shopsmith MARK V 520S Horizontal Boring Machine stands toe-to-toe with commercial models.

Shopsmith MARK V 520S

Tilt your worktable to 20° and you have a built-in fixture for screw pockets. The optional Rip Fence will guide your workpiece for in-line drilling and your optional Miter Gauge can act as a workpiece stop or angle guide. Enjoy 25″ of chuck-to-worktable surface distance and 58″ of chuck-to-floor distance.  Get a full 4-1/4″ of up-down spindle travel controlled by a convenient, graduated hole depth indicator and easy-to-set adjustable depth stop.

Enjoy All the Woodworking Capabilities You Could Want
— in the Space You Have Now!

The Individual Tool Workshop

The left side of this diagram shows how the collective storage footprint required to house just 7 of the common tools in a Workshop will promptly boot one of your family cars right out of the garage! Plus, you’ll have loads of time-consuming tool shuffling to do before you can start enjoying your shop time.

The Compact Shopsmith Workshop

The right side of this diagram shows how the Shopsmith Multi-purpose Tool shop (including every tool you see in the left side of the diagram, plus more) stows neatly away on the floor and on a shop-made, wall-mounted shelf…occupying just 2 feet x 6 feet of floor space along the front of the garage. Plenty of room to work without excess tool shuffling — and ample space for two family cars.

Changing from Tool-to-Tool is Quick, Simple, and Takes Only Seconds


Only 1 Machine to Learn, Not 5

Quick-acting locks, wheels, wingnuts, and handles provide for rapid tool positioning and lock down – and all spindle-mounted accessories can be attached and removed with just one tool— the 5/32″ allen wrench that comes with your Machine.

In fact, after only a short amount of time working with your Shopsmith, you’ll begin to notice that your projects will flow more smoothly from one operation to the next as your experience guides you to work with increasing efficiency!


1 Machine, 7 Tools, Quick & Easy Changeovers. WATCH THE DEMONSTRATION VIDEO

“I’ve heard the objections (about changeovers) many times from people who don’t own a Shopsmith— but I have never heard it from Shopsmith Owners!”

Fred Wescott
North Scituate, MA

Switch from Tool to Tool in Under 3 Minutes

Ask any Shopsmith Owner about changeovers and you’ll quickly be told that the issue practivally never enters their mind. Changeovers become second nature and are normal steps you take to complete your project. (Note: PowerPro Smart Motor shown with Drill Press)

Make every job faster & Easier using Shopsmith’s shared features

Shared Features

Unlike individual stationary power tools, The Shopsmith uses the same components (Motor, Speed Control, Worktable, Extension Tables, Rip Fence, Miter Gauge, etc.) for practically every operation. As a result, you’ll enjoy a host of powerful work-saving features and benefits that just aren’t available with individual stationary tool counterparts. Here are just a few examples which can be enjoyed as You add Work Packages and other accessories.

A single set of controls makes learning easier
because You’ll only need to learn how to work with one set of controls instead of a different set for each of the five tools. That means you’ll learn how to produce better results with your MARK V 520S and do it with far less practice than you would with the five individual tools.

A giant, full-tilting 17-1/2″ x 22″ Worktable
that tilts front-to-back and can be expanded significantly with stationary extension table and floating extension tables (If added separately). The main table offers dual miter gauge slots, a super-versatile optional rip fence and optional interchangeable table inserts for drum sanding, routing, shaping, molding, dadoing, etc. You’ll never see a worktable this large with this much versatility on another drill press or disc sander.

Infinitely variable speeds between 750 – 5200 RPM
allows you to instantly change your speed to perfectly align with the operation You are performing. And, if You don’t know the right speed, a circular scale with popular speeds is built-into the speed control handle. All with no bothersome guards to remove or belts to change.

With the unique features of a drill press
you can make micro-adjustments when sawing, dadoing, or routing that are faster and easier. Another great feature you can borrow from the Drill Press includes the ability to move your sanding disc to the workpiece rather than vice-versa to more accurately size your stock for individual projects and creates greater stability with no workpiece movement. No other table saw or disc sander offers these features!

A single, 1-1/8 (at 120 volts) Motor
that gives plenty of torque throughout its infinitely variable speed range to tackle your toughest woodworking tasks without having to pay for a separate, costly motor for each of the five tools Your MARK V 520S replaces. Motors this powerful are typically only offered on commercial machines with big price tags!
