There are good ones, and even more bad ones.
Hi Benny.

You seem to know a bit etc... I tried to start a thread about smithy SuperShop lathes. I think that is what they are called. There have been no hits on it. Any idea where else I might try?

I looked at the Smithy, perhaps like the Smithy "3 in one" metal lathe, drill, and mill, does everything, but not anything very well.
It just seems, stand alone purpose machines are always better.

The smithy 3-in-1 is a metalworking tool, so you might get more replies trying your questions in a metalworking forum. (I'm not saying you can't ask the question here, I'm just saying there is a better chance that someone on a metalworking forum has one of them.) There are a few out there that don't cater to the pros:

http://www.hobby-machinist.com/forum.php
http://www.chaski.com/homemachinist/

Insert witty signature line here.

Hi Joe. I was looking at the SuperShop, not the 3-in-1. The advertise the SuperShop as a woodworking multipurpose machine.

Smithy has a remake of the old Shopsmith MK5, wood working machine, separate from the dreadful Smithy "3 in one" metal working machines.

From their advertising it seemed the smithy remake was far superior to the shop smith. Of course I have never had hands on with either so cannot speak from experience.

I looked at their tools, very nice.
I like the longer miter leg on the combo square.
