  • 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 recall previous posts about the desirability of this kind of tool. It just appeared on a Phoenix area auction site. Here's a link.

Winning bidders need to pay for and pick up their lots within a couple days of the auction's closing (5/31, 7PM). If a forum member wants to go for it and wants to make arrangements with me for payment and/or pickup, send me a PM. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with this equipment, so I couldn't help you determine its condition or completeness.
