  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I will not be around. I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

Please see the pics. It was a fun project. I took it apart, degreased, evaporust and reassembly with some new paint.
Now, what to do with it? Sell it or use it? It is tight, the table fits into the base very tight but smooth as glass.

We have noticed that, John... ;) I am also a sucker for B&S tools and machines. Great stuff, at least up until lately.

Does anyone know about how old this 10” Brown and Sharpe May be?
I have decided to keep it for now, I have some ideas for a project or two where it will improve my skills and come in handy.

Hang on to it! It might not get used much, but when you come across a project where you need one you will be glad it's sitting there under the dust! :)

If you think about it , there's tons of things it can do over a vise or table. Plus with an angle plate it can be mounted at an angle or any angle with an adjustable angle plate. Give it a wipe of tacky oil and cover with a rag and stick it on a shelf. That's a top shelf table you have don't part with it . You'll never get a better made one.

I never thought about an angle plate. I have seen the Vertex rotary tables that can be turned 90 degrees.
Good thinking.
Yeah, it's a well made tool. There is no slop anywhere. Smooth as glass.
It's a keeper.

Ha, I actually used it when I welded one of the grinder stands. A little spin, weld, a little spin, weld, you get the idea.
