Not a Midas


not a midas

Nearly 30 years ago, Smithy developed the design for the currrent MIDAS machine line and contracted with a factory to build these machines. We have made many improvements to the MIDAS machine over the years, but we still have the manufacturer build the MIDAS 3-in-1 machines exclusively for Smithy at this same factory. No other company buys machines like this from this same factory.

Since the development of the MIDAS line, there have been many knock-os of the MIDAS built at many dierent factories. At one point there were 38 dierent factories making MIDAS style knock-os.

All of these machines are of inferior design and manufacture - built to sell cheap and generally having a variety of quality problems. Typical quality shortcomings include - pitted castings and inferior quality bearings, lead screws, or other components.

Only MIDAS 3-in-1 machines have quality built-in throughout the machine building process.

MIDAS machines are built with these quality considerations:

DESIGN: Well-balanced design for ecient tool and operational changes between machining functions. No other 3-in-1 has this level of engineering and design cons- iderations.

MANUFACTURE: Smithy company employees are involved in the manufacturing and inspection of every machine tool as it goes through each manufacturing step.

QUALITY CONTROL: Each MIDAS machine goes through a thorough inspection at the factory - PLUS, each machine is inspected by DMT personnel at our Ann Arbor, MI facility before shipping to the customer.

AFTER SALES SERVICE: Simply stated, no other company selling 3-in-1 machines has the same level of respect for customer support as Smithy with the MIDAS machine line. We have the largest inventory of spare parts, the most knowledgable technicians, and the longest warranty (2 years) in the industry.

There’s a good chanse you will only buy one machine like this during your lifetime. Why not buy the best - the one combo machine tool that is “Built to Last a Lifetime.” And, this is a machine that is guaranteed to pay its own way. This is the best reason of all the buy the best.
