OK, thanks ..... and thanks.
I will get some of the 510 arbors. However, at $20 a pop it adds up quickly if I want to get one for each blade I use. Also, I think the 510 5/8" arbors are out of stock at SS. Then again, it seems like a whole lot of their accesories are on back order - has anyone noticed that?

If you anything like me I had to spend a bundle on getting all the things I needed after the upgrade. The arbors do go on sale now and then so maybe you can get just one or two then wait for a sale to get the rest. If you have the sanding disks they too have different hubs, one came with the upgrade the others I had to buy, they are like wise expensive.

As far as thing being out of stock I'm thinking that is a result of the cost savings efforts that are now going on at shopsmith. This was one of the things I was worried about... but that is how things are and may be that way from now on.

I have a couple of back ordered items, one since the fathers day sale... good thing they are things I don't have to have right now.

OK, just two (hopefully) more questions:
1) can model 500 lathe tool rest be used on a 510?
2) I know the hubs are different on the 510 vs. 500 sanding disk, but is this just because of the lower saw guard? Can't one just extend the quill to get the 500 sanding disk properly placed in the table slot? When I use the sanding disk, I generally don't use the lower saw guard; I just put the dust collector hose right near where I am sanding.

Yes, I believe that it can be. It's different, but it still fits in the hole and tightens down. There are some really nice upgrades on the tool rest for the 520 that can be easily adapted to your situation. Not terribly expensive. The little L-shaped grub screw tightener uppers are a great example.

Can't intelligently answer the other one. :oops:

Hi again,

The lathe tool rest is a yes and no sort of thing. The new carriage has a wider space between the holes so that is why the new tool rest arm is longer... depending on what you are doing this could be an issue. The levers are also nice but then I upgraded my levers years ago on my old 500 version anyway.

On the subject of sanding disks, yes you can use the 500 ones if you don't use the saw guard/dust collector. My guess is you never got the dust collector for the 500 so you haven't used one. I use to do the same way you are talking about but I broke down and spent the money as there was still a lot of dust in the air that the hose alone just doesn't get. Even if you don't start using the dust collector system now it might be a good thing to have on your wish list... I have 6 disks, one came with my 510 and one came with the upgrade kit leaving me to buy 4 of them for a total of about $80+. Ouch is right.
