  • 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.

Got this bad boy all the way from Massachusetts to Georgia a couple days ago, I'll have a youtube of the trip up as soon as it finishes loading.

I'm SUPER happy with the condition of the machine, less than .003 of wear on the ways. Everything moves smooth and clean

Came with:
3 Jaw chuck
4 Jaw chuck
Taper attachement
Steady Rest
Follow Rest
Aloris tool post with 1 holder
Face Plate
Coolant pump and a Kool Mist

Now I need to source a VFD to get 3ph power to it
