  • 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.

Does anyone know the history of bandfilers?
I'm guessing that, like so many other machines, they were replaced by CNC and NC.
Was the best application Tool and Die work?

We have one in the shop here. Years ago when they made railroad tie plates, it was used to square up the holes for the spikes. It just collects dust now.
