  • 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.

ELTO Super 90.

Hello all,
Had to go digging in the untouched for years recesses for something and dug out an old ELTO Super 90 arc welder. It's been well over 3 decades since it last saw daylight and I figure it would be a perfect mate to one of those Kel-Arc stitch welders that are so great for the light stuff.
Would anyone have any information on it? I have done a bit of interweb searching but not much has come up.
Attached pictures are from the web, mine doesn't look so pretty.
