Tuning your Shopsmith Power Station for optimal performance:

The Shopsmith Power Station is a practically maintenance-free machine. However, to maintain its optimal performance, occasionally, a few very simple procedures are required. Here's what we suggest:

  • Every 10 operating hours (or monthly) - Clean thoroughly and wax both the Carriage Holes and Carriage Glide Surfaces with a high-quality furniture paste wax.
  • Every 50 hours (or twice a year) - Check to ensure that the Setscrews of the Upper and Lower Pulleys are securely tightened.

No additional lubrication is required, since all Machine bearings are permanently lubricated.

If you're having problems with your Shopsmith Power Station, start by referring to the Troubleshooting Chart in your Owner's Manual. If you are unable to find the solution to your problem there...or of you don't have an Owner's Manual, please feel free to call our TOLL-FREE Technical Services Hotline at 1-800-762-7555 for assistance.
