  • 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.

You would need a DC permanent magnet or shunt wound motor of the correct voltage- but your controller may or may not be working- try to download
the schematic/manual if you can, it should tell you what type of motor to use and the voltage and current ratings.

You're welcome- If it needs fixing I might be able to help you troubleshoot it, but it really helps to have the schematic on hand.

ps sounds like a pretty good deal for 1$, especially if it works!

you can test it by putting a few bulbs across the output, it should vary the brightness as you turn the control - that will save you buying a DC motor just to find it's fried :)
