Manuals, Documents, and Images for Shopsmith users

About Us


Some Basic Info

This site is not affiliated with nor endorsed by Shopsmith or RLFBRANDS LLC.  This site is intended to serve as a resource for documentation and imagery for the Shopsmith community.  There is no charge of any kind to download information.  In fact, the authors of some of these data have explicitly stated that their work is never to be sold.  So, we won’t do it.  You shouldn’t either.  All trademarks, product names, company names, logos, service marks, and/or imagery mentioned, displayed, cited, or otherwise indicated on this Site are the property of their respective owners.

I am a longtime Shopsmith owner and an avid woodworker. Over the years, I have accumulated many documents and manuals, some in hardcopy and others in digital format.  I decided to create an archive of all this info so that it can be shared with other Shopsmith enthusiasts.

It is not my intent to infringe on any copyrights or trademarks, or any personal or proprietary imagery.  If you have any issue with an image or a document, please notify me immediately and I will remove it.  Many of the images were obtained via Shopsmith, Ebay listings, Craigslist posts, a search of the Shopsmith Forums, Shopsmith Facebook groups, and the internet.  You can use the Contact Us button on the ‘Home’ page of the web site.

The structure of the site will undoubtedly change slightly as it evolves.  I hope to keep each category limited to 10 or 15 files- to make it a little easier to scroll through the filenames searching for something.  I’ll create new categories when I need to. Eventually, things may be better organized and sorted alphabetically, but right now it’s a little clumsy.

The independent Shopsmith repair persons available on the ‘Links’ page have been personally utilized by me- I received excellent service from them.  I have not been compensated by them, nor were they aware that I linked to their businesses.  

Some files in the download sections may appear in multiple categories for now.  And there are many documents that are waiting to be scanned- the process is ongoing…

Thanks for your patience!
