  • 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.

Yes, I use them all the time excellent card, I call using them my "Template Division for my Plate & Girder Section" Using card, frequently saves a lot of time and hassle , Lets you see how the job looks before cutting metal.

Many auto gaskets come wrapped in cellophane around some of the same weight of paper. The only sort of CAD (cardboard aided design) I have in the shop, and I save every piece. If you use pen to mark lines for the scissor, that is "Redneck" CAD. If you use pencil, that is "Amish" CAD:D.

Ah yes, do indeed extol the benefits as no shop operator should be unaware. LOL...

I use it for swarf containment on the mill and as way protectors on the lathe. Those powerful magnets do a good job of holding it in place. I've also found that small pieces of swarf get stuck to the magnet and are less likely to get jammed in the ways on the compound and cross-slide.
