Knowledge and Experience You Can Trust
TombstoneCity™ was founded by Andy Popky, who has long had a passion for fixing things and solving other people’s problems. As a child, Andy was fascinated with anything mechanical and later took that enthusiasm into his first job at a scale factory. Andy was known to spend his lunch breaks in the machine shop asking questions, learning, and getting hands-on experience. Over the next two decades, Andy expanded his knowledge and expertise by working in all aspects of the machinery industry.
In 1999, Andy received a phone call from his good friend and customer, Randy Neubauer of Min-Max Machine. Randy needed tombstones for a new HMC they had purchased and trusted Andy for his connections and problem-solving skills. Andy sourced a top-quality tombstone at a great price, and on that day TombstoneCity was born. Over 20 years later those tombstones are still in use at Min-Max’s shop and we are now the largest supplier of tombstones, angle plates, sub plates, and modular vise systems in North America.
TombstoneCity, a family-owned and operated business, strives to provide you with personal, attentive customer service. If you have a workholding problem or need, call TombstoneCity today and speak directly with Andy or his daughter Jackie.
With over 45 years of combined experience, our team can guide you towards the most efficient solution to get your job done.
