Hi Dusty,

Just thought you might want to know this.

I have 4 machines all made after 1972/3 that have the some issue with the location of the pedals. My reference machine, a 1976 that I purchased new I was able to trace the caster set purchase to 1979. So the design and pedal location are traceable to Shopsmith.

Reference attached

If those caster sets were manufactured by Magna or Yuba does Shopsmith have any responsibility to keep documentation accurate?

I agree that it would be very accommodating if Shopsmith printed a notice about this in their paper work but can we fault them for not doing so?

The rod (503807) does not appear to depict the rods that are in my caster sets. Mine have two holes (each end) for a roll pin to secure the pedal.

Dusty you didn't happen to get a parts diagram like mine did you?

I was just thinking that shopsmith could offer a new "rod option kit" for older machines. You get the caster set and the rod, the rod drilled in the correct spot for mounting the casters. So maybe they have to up the cost another $10 but I'm sure some people would like that option.

Just another though.

I do not have a drawing of my caster sets. I may have received them but I do not have them now. Sorry. Thank you for posting what you had.

When this whole issue first came up, I went looking for that documentation.
