Anyone heard of Shop Smith?

My dad has a large assembly of Shop Smith tools, like a planer, lathe, band saw, and some other parts. Can anyone offer up advice or information on Shop Smith? He asked me to place a post here. He is looking to get rid of all but the lathe.

My father-in-law had one years ago. They've been around for quite a while.

I have the whole shebang, it was my grandfather's. A series II I think. Cost a lot new but don't seem to get much money used.

Have one my grandpa bought new in the '50s. Only nice for small shop when you don't have room for a bunch for equipment. Takes to long to switch set ups.

PM sent.

I have done some searching, there isnt a huge love for ShopSmith, it seems rather quiet. But, they are still making them. I wonder if newer models have a quicker way to switch out and whatnot. thanks so far for the info.

Most ask very large sums of money for their shop smiths. I don't know if they actually get what there asking for them but they have always seemed to run high. There are alof of collectors out there who pick this stuff up just for the value, not for use.
