Little Giant, change of ownership

Unread post by pete.stanaitis » Mon Jun 17, 2013 9:29 pm

John Grump passed around this announcement at the Badger Blacksmiths meeting at our place last Saturday. There was an additional note saying that Sid’s health is fine. As many of you know, Roger Rice has been a major presence in the organization ever since Sid bought out the Little Giant portion of Dotson. The website is:
Little Giant is changing ownership, effective immediately. In order to perpetuate the line of
replacement parts, repair services and information, Little Giant will now be in the extremely
capable hands of our machinist, Roger Rice. He will be assisted by our friend David Sloan,
who has a great understanding of the mechanical operation of Little Giants. We will be
assisting Roger and Dave during the initial transition, and Sid will continue teaching the
annual Little Giant rebuilding class. The same telephone number (402-873-6603) and email
address ( will move to the new location at Midwest Machine, 6414
King Road, Nebraska City, Nebraska 68410.
It has been a great 22 years, and we are profoundly grateful to have been a part of the
blacksmithing community. We have often said we have the best customers in the world, and
we do mean it It has been an honor to not only help keep these venerable machines in
operation, but to have made so many good friends in the process.
With sincere appreciation,
Sid Suedmeier and Keri Hincker
I scanned this in from a paper copy, so forgive me if there are any “typos”.
