About Us

Josh Topper, Owner

Topper Machine is a full service machining and fabricating shop.  We began operation in 2012, when we saw the demand for a cost effective, low volume, CNC alternative.  We are an entirely manual machining and fabricating shop.  Being a manual only shop, does not limit what we can do.  In fact, it increases our abilities.  Complex parts  can not be reproduced efficiently on modern CNC equipment.  This is where we come in.  We work with original parts or drawings to produce exactly what you need.   We save our customers time and money because we don't spend hours programming a CNC machine.  We spend that time actually making your parts.  

We have a vast inventory of machines and support tooling to accomplish any task.  Many of our machines are very specialized and are capable of doing things that are not economically feasible with modern CNC equipment.  

We offer short run production, large capacities, prototypes, welding, fabricating, & repairs.

We are a secure facility.  We require appointments for all visitors.  Not only does this ensure our customers privacy, but gives all visitors our undivided attention, and ensures their safety and ours.   

Give us a call.  Find out for yourself why our moto is:

Example Of Our Machining Capabilities

This is a modified engine bearing retainer.  The original design limited the uses of the engine to one application.


Example of Our Welding/Fabricating Capability

This is just a small example of our welding and fabricating capability.  This structure is a frame work to support the carriage of a sawmill.  It is 48 feet long, and is within 1/32" of strait overall.  This is one of our personal projects, which is the sawmill we operate with our A. D. Baker Steam Traction Engine.
