OWNERS SPEAK OUT
Testimonials from Smithy's happiest customers
No Wait Time With My Smithy
“I have a Granite 1324. I run a job shop outfit that does machining work for plastics manufacturing companies. My customers some- times have orders with two or three day turn-around. I work in alumi- num, plastic, and brass. What I enjoy most about the Granite is lathe work. It is really easy.“
- Hai David Nguyen, L.K.B. TX
More Convenient For Hobbyists
“I use my Smithy to make or modify parts for motorcycles and antique guns. I’m in this as a hobby. The Smithy probably has paid for itself but I haven’t kept track. What is more important to me is the conve- nience of making my own parts, exactly as I need them when I need them.“
- Kerry Klein, MI
Support Leads the Way
“I looked at other machining equipment but chose Smithy because of the quality, size, and availability of tech support. It’s compact yet it does the work of larger units. It’s a lot of machine that takes up a little space and it will pay for itself in the long run.”
- Danny A, KY
Better Than a Grizzly
“After technical school, I did an apprenticeship in clock and watch repair and in tool and die making. I’’m retired now and run a busy clock repair shop with my Smithy. I make parts for older clocks, cut clock gears, and make the cutters as well overhaul clock repair tools. I purchased a 9” x 19 bench lathe from Grizzly but returned it because of poor quality. I chose Smithy for its sturdiness, its milling capabilities, and its compact size.”
- William V-R., GA
-Wendell (Owner of Small Textile Company)
His Smithy Helped Him build his Dream Ride.
"I bought my Smithy last year specifically to help me with this bike. I used it for the foot and toe pegs as you can see in the picture, but also I used it to make wheel spacers, chain tensioner, mounting brackets and so many other parts. My Granite was instrumental in getting my bike the way I wanted, and getting the recognition from a lot of bike shows and even a magazine feature. I am not a professional builder, just a guy that loves motorcycles."
-Richard C., AL
Gunsmith saves $5,000
"I could have purchased a reproduction sharps model 1874, breechloading, .45-70 caliber rifle-if I wanted to wait five years and spend $5,500. Instead I built my own with my Smithy. Total cost excluding sights: $263.

The Smithy works wood, too! Turn round or square wooden workpieces with less chatter and vibration than light, ordinary wood lathes.
Jim made 28 bowls on his Smithy.
