  • 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.

Got tired of reaching over the mill table to turn on and off the kool mist, so I put the valve on the table with a t nut and bracket.

I’m using a small nozzle tip and haven’t noticed any fog in the air

Hopefully my end mills will be happier now

I used a ball valve but it functions the same way, mine is attached to a portable (12"x12") metal frame and a water filter canister .I find these manual valves easier to install than the 12 volt air valve/solenoids.
