  • 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 had Fastenal order some 1616 & 1607 bearing for my Ellis 100H saw. It took the bearing about 10 day or so to arrive as they were scattered around at their stores.

They can get them faster if you want to pay extra freight.

The bearing are Bearing Limited made in China and are about $2.00 each.
