I have a knock-off I bought from HF that was made from casting molds made form a Shopsmith after the patents expired for that model. I got the bandsaw, 6" jointer and 4" wide belt sander with it for less than the original Shopsmith without the extras. Over the years I have had to make a few repairs and could not get parts from HF so it has Shopsmith parts installed in place of the original parts. All but one part was a direct replacement, the one had to have a 5 minute modification made to it to work on my machine. I also have router collets for it along with the fence. It is buried in the back of the shop out of the way and I have thought about selling it several times to get more room in the shop. I did use it for horizontal boring on a project last year so I'm glad I had it.

You got a great deal and I think you can get a lot of use out of it.
