  • 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.

its a toll presetter
It looks like a measuring microscope, too. Can it serve that function as well, I wonder?
Digitizing from a sample can be done old-school, by mapping shapes with such a gizmo. I made
a custom wrench that way, back when game consoles first used 'line head' fasteners.
I just had to break inside the new NEC TurboGrafix box...

Yes, you have a bargain.
It could also serve as an Optical Comparitor, too. That's what I'd use it for, draw a profile at whatever magnification it supports and compare your hand ground tool to your desired shape.
