  • 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.

No problem. We understand. -Very nice mics!

I just consolidated all the shop mics to a single type and brand and am very happy that I did.

Beautiful stuff, Robert! Be careful, or we will find your honey hole! I would love a set of CEJ imperial gage blocks, old ones in great shape, and the accessory kit to go with them.

Yes, Henry Ford bailed out CEJ when he was not getting anywhere, and he soon had more business than he could handle. A Ford set would be cool, but in this country the collectors have already picked up most all of them. The ones in Europe are almost all metric, which is really not a problem even here.

Correct. I believe all the metric ones will be marked CEJ. I would be happy with a nice set of those...
