  • 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.

Got a Brown and sharp 12" dial caliper for checking push rod length off of Ebay. Not sure if this is acceptable. Is there is an adjustment, or this is how it is supposed to be?

I would return that thing, Aukai. Definitely not normal for a B&S caliper.

I was kinda figuring it was not going to be good, even for a discount line.

Could be a fake.

The dial itself should show ValuLine printed, unless B&S changed it. p1195.jpeg

Thank you, it does have Valueline on the face. The vendor will take it back, and has sent a shipping label.
