  • 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.

The Grizzly G0750G and the PM 1236 appear to be almost identical machines to me. The Griz has a D1-5 cam lock and the PM 1236 uses the smaller D1-4. The PM 1236 stand comes with a brake and coolant system. The Griz has a spider on the outboard of the spindle and its tail stock has a 1/2" square drive available to use a torque wrench on. Other than that everything else seems quite similar. Are Grizzly Build Specifications a higher standard than the PM 1236 or is it a wash?

If I’m not mistaken, the D1-4 is more common making chucks easier to find and cheaper.

Customer Service at PM is outstanding. Matt and crew are on top of things!!
My 1236 has a spider also, it wasn’t listed but came with it!
