Brand New Smithy 1340 Max

Post by Agleason » Sun Dec 03, 2017 9:22 pm

Long story short, I grew up in my father's machine shop. After he passed 2 years ago his widow promptly sold everything. Needless to say, I missed not being able to machine or make anything with dad's old machines. So my sweet bride got me a Smithy 1340 Max as a gift.
I immediately saw the need for a stand alone bench that could be moved when necessary and leveled for machining. The bench is nearly finished, got a few more days to work and paint before mounting the Smithy.

So, how are you liking your new machine? I am on the fence of ordering one as we speak.

I love the machine so far... This is a link to my YouTube videos on the machine.
