I've been around and owned a Shopsmith a better part of my life. I was the Shopsmith mentor with the local woodworking club. When asked about certain tools there were certain ones that I would not recommend. The 2 that come to mind are the planer & scroll saw. $200 is about right for that plane. A new one cost $1590+ if you buy the stand alone version.. Until the new DVR motor came out the Shopsmith motor was 1-1/8 hp. That's not strong enough for a plane. It's also heavy. Taking it on & off the Shopsmith will give your back a work out. Now, the scroll saw. It is priced way to high and it gives you nothing any other run-of-the-mill saw gives you.
