  • 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'm looking at Sieg KX1 / LMS 3501 CNC mill, any one know if it is any good?

Hi everyone, my first real post. I have searched high and low for a review or other information about the Sieg KX1 aka LMS 3501 mini CNC mill. I have just discovered that LMS has stopped selling it, and that with the fact that there is so little information to find on the internet worries me.

I posted an introduction of myself and my milling objectives here: http://www.hobby-machinist.com/showthread.php?t=25862

I would appreciate it if you can provide some info about this unit, or point me in the right direction.

Thank you.
