  • 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 wend on a shopping trip and found this little beauty - I couldn't resist! It needs a complete lubrication system rebuild, but it holds to good tolerances and the lead screws are all sound.

It looks to be very well taken care of. I've only ran a handful of the B&S grinders over the years, but quickly grew fond of them.

Almost identical to my 612 Value master SG. You're is in much nicer shape than mine, too! Plus you have a electric magnetic chuck, mine is a walker lever type. Nice score!
