+1 on what Sailah said.
We use a Smithy at the science museum where I work, I've seen it converted for milling once in the two+ years I've been there. I would not buy one. The tail stock has very short travel, one of many things that bugs me about it. It's better than nothing, but, if I was going to spend 2700 on my own shop, I'd get each tool separately. On the plus side, Smithy parts are available when it breaks and customer service is decent.
