  • 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.

This is the Round Dial version. A 1942 machine. Are there any such rests available out there anywhere? What kind of price tag would something like that bring? Are there even any plans available to make one as a last resort? Thanks all.

Thank you Paul. That may be the way I have to go on this and your offer could be a very big help.

a 10EE steady rest usually runs over $300.00. They come up on Ebay. I don't recall seeing a follower rest though.
