Dear Wood Workers
I'm contemplating selling a Shopsmith Mark V, model 510,
on ebay. I would prefer to sell it to a person in the
Gainesville Florida area or surrounding area. I have
several accessories for the main unit. I figure the
entire bunch of stuff would retail for about $8,000.
And I realize that I haven't listed the accessories,
mainly because, I just don't want to go out to my shed
and do another inventory. But I would be willing to
entertain non-collect calls or emails from interested
I bought the whole setup when my health was a lot better.
So, if there are woodworkers in my area that might be
interested, I think I could make someone a very sweet
deal. But if you think I'm going to give it away for
a dime on the dollar, please save your time and mine.
Also, I will ask that you make an appointment to view
the machine, due to my need to have taken my proper
medications, in order to be amenable to visitors. I
positively will not entertain visitors who can't give
me at least 3 hours notice of their arrival. Even if
you figure out where I live, without my directions or
if you decide to arrive at a time much different than
we might agree on, just because you happen to be in
my area. Just so you understand a little bit about
my health, here are some details. I suffer from major
depression, and more recently, my left leg was amputated
above the knee and also, I'm in constant neuropathy pain.
So, the levels of my medications need to be carefully
considered before I can be a 'normal' person.
If I don't answer the phone when you call, I suggest that
you try again in about 30 or 60 minutes. If I am up and
about and available, I normally can answer the phone in
less than 4 rings. Please don't let it ring and ring and
