  • 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.

Yes it should be reversible; you need to locate the wires to the start winding inside and bring them out- it may be easy but on some motors is more difficult- you won't know until you open it up- may need to remove the rear end bell

20 or 30 wt. non-detergent oil would be best, if you need to use motor oil temporarily that would be ok
