  • 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.

I know this question has been asked before, but did not get a clear cut answer. The Clausing manual for the 5914 recommends using SHELL TELLUS 33 or equivalent for the apron. I found Mobil dte 26 to be an equivalent, but I do not have any. I do have 2 1/2 gallons of Enerpac HF 102 hydrolic oil, ISO 32. Will this work in the apron, or does anyone know of an easy to find alternative?
