  • 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.

Good morning. I have a Logan 820 Lathe that has some bad gears in the quick change gear box. The replacement gears from Logan are way beyond my budget. I have found gears that will work but need some modifications. The thickness needs to be reduced and the bore enlarged for the bushings. There are two 16/32tooth gears and a 40 tooth gear. Haven’t received the 40t yet. I’m near Asheville NC.
Any help or advice would really be appreciated.
Thanks!

You should be able to use your lathe to bore and face the gears. The hand cranks should still work.

If not, I'm sure someone local can help out.

I was tempted to try it myself but am not sure I have the skill. Also I only have a 3 jaw chuck and am concerned about accuracy of it for boring.
Thanks
