Shopsmith's traditional 1950's multipurpose woodworking machine started struggling in the 1990s. Maturing technology and growing competition required Shopsmith to introduce a completely revamped machine. Striatech brought the revolution for Shopsmith's PowerPro in form of the the digital variable reluctance motor -- introducing an increased smooth, electronic variable speed range from 250 rpm to 10,000 rpm, auto selection of speed using a computer database of operations based on choices entered and a huge boost in power from 1HP to 1.75HP with twice the torque, making the machine a market success.
- I've been very pleased with the precision that can be achieved with the Shopsmith... and wouldn't trade the variable speed feature for a whole shop full of individual tools. Each time I try a new operation, I'm amazed at the engineering and quality that went into this tool! -
