At the last AWFS show in Las Vegas, the big news was the introduction of granite tops as a replacement for cast iron by Steel City Tool Works. We’ve had three of these machines in the shop for a few months, and I used them to build the workbench featured on the cover of this issue.

We’ve been impressed with Steel City’s products, and these new arrivals are of the same caliber. This review will focus on the addition of granite to already good machines.
