• Over 10 years ago, (September 10, 2010), Nelson Timken, our founder, had a dream of a friendly machinist site, where people could learn the hobby of machining. We want to wish everyone a healthy, happy New Year, full of joy and success. God bless you, and thank you for supporting The Hobby-Machinist.
