Upgrading and using the Power Pro

Longtime Shopsmith instructor Doug Reid shows how to use the Power Pro controls, and why you should upgrade. (Or get a new Mark 7).

Shopsmith’s new PowerPro headstock is the best thing Shopsmith has done since offering the 510/520 upgrades-maybe the best thing ever.

The headstock comes standard on the new Mark 7, but can be added to any of the Mark V series, all the way back to 1953.

You will get noticibly more power, ease of use, a quieter tool, and most of all,  just more fun.

The new motor (do a google search for DVR motors for more technical details) offers the more power for it’s size and weight than anything else I know of on the market today. The motor is controlled by a preprogrammed computer that sets not only the right speed, but the right amount of torque (usable power) for every operation…and does it on 80% less electricity.
