  • 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.

Hi Guys, I am after a Taper Turning Attachment for my 260 lathe.So if you have one you don't need or ever use I have both the use and need for it.
I am not just trying to collect all the pieces to have sitting in a cupboard.
Please contact me direct to discuss it.
Cheers from Micheal.
