Updated June 14th, 2010:
Well that didn't take long! THE INITIAL PRODUCTION RUN IS ALREADY SOLD OUT!
Shopsmith announced that they are offering four optional ways for you to upgrade your MARK V Headstock to the new Shopsmith PowerPro.
One awesome part of this announcement is that no matter which Upgrade method you select, all parts that are included or replaced will be covered by a 5-year PowerPro Motor Warranty and a 2-Year Warranty on all Electronic Components, Belts and Bearings!
Let’s look at the options.
OPTION # 1: NEW, READY-TO-RUN PowerPro HEADSTOCK
Owners selecting this Upgrade option will receive a brand-new MARK V Headstock, complete with the new PowerPro Motor, all electronic circuitry, Digital Control Panel, Two-Bearing Quill, Quill Feed Mechanism, Drive Sleeve Assembly, Pulleys, Poly-V Belts, Cord and Headstock Wedge Locks.
To install you just slide your current MARK V Headstock off the Way Tubes and slide the new Headstock on in its place, keeping your "old" Headstock as a "spare".
This option is part # 556176 New PowerPro Headstock and is priced at $1899.
OPTION # 1A: NEW PowerPro HEADSTOCK WITH TRADE-IN
This option is essentially the same as Option #1 above...except that you will return your Old Headstock to Shopsmith for a refund. Owners selecting this Upgrade option will receive a brand-new MARK V Headstock, as described above. However, under this option, you will simply ship your old Headstock back to Shopsmith for a $200 Cash Refund.

Shopsmith will then ship your Upgraded PowerPro Headstock back to you.

OPTION #4: DO-IT-YOURSELF PowerPro UPGRADE
Owners selecting the Do-It-Yourself Upgrade option will receive a new PowerPro Motor, all electronic circuitry, Digital Control Panel, new Two-Bearing Quill, new Upper Drive Sleeve Assembly, new Poly-V Belts and new Cord… all for self-installation in your current MARK V Headstock. In addition, you will receive a printed Upgrade Manual, an Upgrade DVD and all necessary drilling templates, drill guide and bit for precise machining of the mounting holes for the new components. It is estimated that the Upgrade process should require approximately four hours to complete. If you currently have newer Belts, Upper Drive Sleeve or a Two-Bearing Quill… in order to protect your Upgrade Warranty, you are required to replace them during the Upgrade process and keep your current parts as "spares". Replacing all of these internal parts assures that all components of your upgraded Headstock are up to today's high PowerPro standards.
