  • 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.

    We've seen a lot of changes. In March, 4 moderators left to start their own site. They took some of you with them. So now you have split loyalties. You know who you are. They didn't like my way of managing this place, and thought they could do better without me. They didn't. The only thing holding them together is that they hate me. Their site was down until mid July. That is why I wanted to stay involved on here until they could learn to run this place. But they wanted me to leave right away, without the training part.

    Anyway, 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 don't want to know about this place.

    What about the 4 moderators who were disloyal? I don't care. It isn't my call anymore. I would think that, rather than fumble, they ought to come back and do good work. That's up to them. If they want to return to try to lead more members to their site, I am done caring. I suffered too much aggravation worrying about it. I don't plan to spend any more. What they do impacts on them. I have my own opinions including those of you who followed them there. No longer my problem.

    I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

This face plate came with my Clausing lathe. The taper and key slot seem correct, but there are no threads to tighten it onto the spindle nose. The only way that I can think it could be used is with some sort of drawbar. Any ideas?
Thanks

That looks to be a specially made face plate, probably for a special job seeing as the plate is cut on the face. I think the part was mounted on the plate in the cut diameter, and then part and plate were drawn in by a draw bar as you're thinking. It was probably easier to center the part that was being cut with that face plate.

Unfinished face plate. Why it was not finished has been lost to time.

It looks like the threaded portion may have been removed, but you are right, if only some of this old stuff could talk.
