Hi everyone.
I recently aquired a Smithy Granite 1324 3-1. I need help-if anyone can do that-in telling me how to break down the machine for moving it. I was told I could remove 4 bolts and the alignment pins and the mill/drill head will lift right off but, I tried that and it just seems like it does not want to break free.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank You

Thanks Charles. I did get the head separated, it was just that heavy it made it feel stuck. I got the machine all set up and in use. It is a pretty nice compact little unit. It will fill all of my needs.

I used to own a 1324. Loosen the bellows, support the head and remove the 4 socket head screws at the base. The mill head can then be lifted off. The only connection to the head stock is the bevel gear. You may need to rock it or jack the head a little to get it started. Be warned it is too heavy for one person. Use a lift if you have one.
