  • 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.

300 bar? 4,351 psi? I guessing that is either a typo or one heck of a compressor! :weight:

This will work, theoretically. But the compressor must be VOLUME biased, not PRESSURE biased. Sorry, couldn't help my self, either.

Pneumatic starter. Most big rigs use that as an electric starter won't cut it.
