  • 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.

Wow! They are a conversation starter. Nicely done, are you going to tumble polish them?

I know my wife has commented on her thoughts on what she would do with mine. I guess I can count my blessings that she did not have a handy supply of steel boxes. :oops:

Wish I could run a computer as well as a lathe. I would post all my little toys. I have some stuff on YouTube . If you look at my avatar you will see a ball in a ball in a ball in a cube. If you want to see a bigger pic google Jimsehr.
