  • 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.

Cool machine, seriously stout, looks like it's in good shape, very expensive for a hohobbyist.

Very nice machines. I ran one some in school, but didn't really use any of it's capabilities. We had three at the Boeing machine Shop I was a Planner for, and the guys could do some amazing things with them. Some of the titanium parts they created on them were works of art. For what they'll do, 4K seems like a good deal to me.

Beautiful machine. 4K isn't really that much anymore, when your talking about a high quality machine of that size. Something comparable in a current machine would be 4-5 times that much. Glad it's too far away for me to worry about. :) Mike
