Totalshop

Anyone know where I can find parts for a Totalshop Woodworking machine?

If it is the Totalshop I am familiar with, a lot of parts are compatable with Shopsmith. Try www.shopsmith.com

TotalShop has been out of business for awhile. Parts are hard to find. A guy in Orange, California was selling off TotalShop's inventory after it went under. He was selling the main 5-in-1 unit for about $800 (new in box). I don't know if he had parts. "JJ Liquidators," I think; The number was (714) 516-1091. I never did business with him, and have no idea if he's still around.
Sometimes a Shopsmith part will work. Sometimes not, and sometimes sort of. On one occasion, I was able to make a Shopsmith part work by machining something to make it fit. I bought a whole sheave assembly. It came with the shaft and bearings. I think it cost in the neighborhood of $140. If I recall correctly (this was a few years ago), I just had to make a replacement eccentric bushing for the bearings, which had a smaller OD than the TotalShop bearings.
Good Luck,
Jim

I think they closed the doors many years ago...but a lot of their machines are clones of other machines...my TotalShop 15" planer is identical (AFAICT) to the Delta 15" planer of the era.
Maybe if you said exactly what machine you have, somebody could help identify the design...
