You might get lucky and snag an amateur, but woodworkers don't want that machine anymore. Too slow; too many setup changes to do to get anything done.

What Dick2 said. Like most machines designed to do multiple things, it does them all adequately but none of them really well.

I have a Mark 5, and while I was on active duty in the Navy and severely restricted on space, it was just the ticket.

Now that I have a little more room, it's been pretty much replaced with a real table saw and a sliding compound miter saw.

I do still use the disc sander and bandsaw functions, and have the lathe tools around if I need them.

They do not sell for very much. Not many people use them any more. I saw a good one sell with the table saw, band saw, plainer, and turning lathe. It brought $150 and only had two bids on it. The rest of the wood working stuff sold sky high so the people where there but the Shopsmith stuff just does not have a very good resale.

They sell for $100-150 at auction around here in Virginina. Not many bidders.
