I came to John with a big project and he had no problem taking it on. I had a Jeep that someone else did an engine swap on. I did not have the tools to pull the engine or put it in, and John and his team did it for me without hesitation. He was honest and transparent with me throughout the whole thing. He even allowed me to come take pictures of the car during the process (things other shops do not normally let you do) I have the car back now and it runs better than I hoped. 10/10 would recommend him and I will definitely use him again for other projects.

Thanks Anders it was a pleasure be able to help you with your Jeep. This is Why I am in business to do Honest Repairs and Machining and being as Transparent and Honest as Possible. I Know that we are all Human and as long as we treat each other with respect and honesty even if and when mistakes happens we can all come through the other side with our heads held high. I am Blessed to have customers like you. Thanks again John Herring Owner.

I dropped of heads to be clean, checked, and milled on Tuesday before Thanksgiving, and picked them up the next day allowing my son and I to take advantage of the Thanksgiving break to put his car back together. Excellent work and best turn around time I've had from a machine in years. I will be back. Thanks John and team.

I had SAM machine/repair heads and a block from a dexcool ravaged 3.1 with over 200k on it. I got the completed/assembled heads along with the block, crank camshaft master rebuild kit and went to work assembling my engine. During the assembly process I ran into a few snags with fitting the camshaft as well as one exhaust stud hole repair that got overlooked on one head and they went out of their way to take care of me. Having installed my completed engine, I ran it through the break-in and became concerned with some smoking at start up. It was heavy at first but it seemed to do better and better so I let my wife drive it to work and she reported that she hadn't noticed any smoking at start up but after the first oil change I noticed that it was still smoking so I gave SAM a few calls but got no answer and no response to my messages. -Because I got no answer from SAM- I decided to have a look myself yesterday so I pulled the plugs - they all had oil/carbon on them to varying degrees so I pulled the valve covers/rockers and using a cyl pressure differential tester to pressurize the cyls I pulled the spring from cyl 1 exhaust valve and found... NO SEAL. As I continued, I found almost EVERY seal on the remaining valves, all the way to cyl. 6, ripped. (See included pictures) Never in my life have I received completed heads from a machine shop that weren't ready to install an run in every respect - It didn't even occur to me that I should have to check something like that. So far, the machine work seems to have been spot on and top-notch but I can't even begin to describe my disappointment here. There was carbon build up on the pistons that actually caused noise not to mention the embarrassment of everyone in the neighborhood watching as I rebuilt this engine only to see clouds of smoke every time I started it after I rolled it out of the garage. (funny but not such a big deal) While it did occur to me to seek resolution through Stamps, I considered three things, 1. They weren't answering the phone - no response to my messages. (turns out the number was changed but there was no way to know) 2. I was already in to it. 3. Considering the kind of mistake, I wasn't excited about trusting anyone else to make this repair. I'd like to point out that this happened to me, an experienced and tooled technician but good god man, if I would have had to rely on them to fix this? I mean, I've spent a long time in the business and I've made a few mistakes myself. It happens - no one is perfect but C'mon, valve seals? It runs great and I appreciate SAMs exceptional machine work but I can only give 3 stars - wish it could have been 5 stars. Update: I have been down to SAMs since this repair and he did say he would have taken care of this had I called but... (got no answer/response on more than 2 or 3 attempts to contact). Let me say this, if 'I' had been behind the counter, I would have offered to pay book time for replacing valve seals. It wouldn't change my review but it would be great to be able to include a satisfactory resolution.

Mr. John was about the nicest gentleman you’d ever meet. I had two motorcycle fork dampeners that needed some machine work and his excellent machinist made quick and tidy work producing excellent results. I couldn’t be more pleased and have a new shop now that I’ll always go to for my projects. Great folks! You won’t be disappointed.

Thanks for coming in Grady. We do appreciate everyone and will alway be as honest and upfront as possible. Thanks again Owner John Herring.

Brought a cylinder head in to Stamps Auto Machine to fix my Own mistakes. They were unsure if they could help, but were willing to try. By the time they opened the following morning, I got a phone call stating they were successful in removing the tap I broke off, and it was all ready to be picked up. Super fast service, and down to earth guys.
