  • 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.

So, the other day, my wife asked me what I was going to do with that blue stand that's been sitting around for a long time. I was not sure what she was referring to so I just asked, "how long has it been sitting around"? She said all winter, it's the one outside by the metal supply shed. Hmmm... thinking to myself... I probably have a dozen things out there painted blue. Back to wife.... Oh, I see... sure, you can use it if you need it. -Didn't really know what she was talking about.

Today I came home and this is in the garden. Look closely... Tell me what it is.

You guys have good eyes. My wife is the master of "deco cammo"...

I was informed last light, the grinder stand has been employed as a flower stand for a few days already. I've probably walked right past it a dozen times and just noticed it yesterday.

I'll bet you didn't tell her what you paid for her flower stand, did you?
