Shopsmith Multipurpose Tool -- Mark V

The Tool You Start With -- The System You Grow With

The predecessor of today’s revolutionary Shopsmith MARK 7 (the legendary 5-tools-in-1 Shopsmith Mark V) was the world’s original multi-purpose woodworking machine. Since its introduction in 1953, a series of important improvements have been made to the Mark V, including:

  • An upgrade from a 3/4 hp motor to a 1-1/8 hp motor, providing added power
  • An upgrade from a single bearing quill to a 2-bearing quill, reducing run-out & wobble
  • The introduction of new, larger table systems for added workpiece support & operator convenience
  • Larger, easier-to-operate rip fences with built-in accommodations for fixtures

Year Made: Introduced 1953 - unsure of Production Date for Dad's Mark V

And, if you don’t need the added advantages provided by the PowerPro Headstock… or the included capabilities of an over/under table shaper and router, we still offer two tried-and-true Mark V versions that include all five of the other tool capabilities listed above.

Easy to use – switches from tool-to-tool in 90 seconds or less

And remember too that you don’t have to be an experienced woodworker to produce top-notch results with ANY version of the Shopsmith Multi-Purpose Woodworking System. Thanks to their multi-purpose design, you need only learn a single set of controls to operate all the basic functions of the Mark V or MARK 7… and switching from tool-to-tool is practically instantaneous.

*NOTE: In addition to the new MARK 7 version of Shopsmith’s Multipurpose Machine, we also offer two versions of the original Mark V machine with a conventional 1-1/8 hp AC Motor and a mechanical speed changing mechanism. These Mark V machines come equipped to perform all of the operations of a MARK 7 Machine, with the exception of under-table shaping and routing (over-table shaping and routing can be performed with Mark V Machines using optional accessories).
