I was also thinking about making a new table for the saw so u can rip larger thi

Maybe just judge the machine to only use it for large and bamdsaw is it even worth repairing this? Or should I just get a mitir saw that's the only thing I do t have I suppose or next big thing. Ive made my large garage into a workshop, bit don't know how to make money yet or what to make. Amy suggestions??

what is a knock off shopsmith? Some clarification on what you want or need would be helpful.

I have a shopsmith I bought 30+ yrs ago. I pretty much only use the table saw set up.

btw - welcome to the forums!

I have no idea where you would find someone to "come service it for you". Lots of people have bought used equipment that needed work, including myself, a number of times, but I've bought things like that knowing that somebody would have to do some work on it, and I knew who somebody was, me. Otherwise, who are you going to call? For starters, I would see if I could find manuals for it, both operating and parts, which, with the internet, is easier than it used to be, but, not knowing what "knockoff" means, maybe you can find something and maybe you can't. If not, you wing it, which means identifying how it works, what's supposed to move and what's not supposed to move, where it needs grease or oil, and continue from there.
