  • 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.

I picked up two horizontal mills. one a Barker model PM. The other is only showing CMC Carbide Milling Company (Cleveland Ohio) Dual Grind. I find no other tag on the unit. The main unit is a match to the Barker but no Barker labels. It even sits on an original Barker cabinet.

I have searched the web for CMC dual grind and Carbide Milling Company but no results. Has any one knowledge or any info on CMC?

The motor looks like a DC motor (have not dug into wiring and voltage on it, only run it. )

That's a cleaner Barker than most I have seen- usually they are real greaseballs :cool 2:

I have a Barker. Mine has a rack on the Z instead of a dial. I've been working on the gibs. Neat little machines though. Did yours come with collets? The only 3c's I can find are Chinese. I'm not sure about the quality.
