  • 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 have been using the 1J version and found it useful. Particularly pointing out things like where the double set screws are and such. It's written a bit like the Chilton car repair manuals. I've found it worth the $30.

If you provide a PDF file it can be uploaded to our Downloads Library. I see we have the 1J version it would be nice to have the 2J.

I used it when rebuilding everything above the spindle on my variable speed Bridgeport. New bearings, varidiscs, bull gears, etc. Lots of good pictures to go along with the text. I thought it was well worth the money.
