  • 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.

After many months of mulling it over, I finally sprung for my first mill ... a PM-932M. It's scheduled to arrive sometime in the next several weeks, and I am itching to get started on making a stand for it. According to the manual on the PM website, the hole spacing for the base is 12.75" x 18.75". I assume the base exterior dimensions are about 15" x 21" (just a guess). If anyone could post the base length/width measurements, I would greatly appreciate it. BTW...the mill will be in good company with my Sheldon 9-inch lathe, which I believe was made sometime in the late 1940s.
Cheers,
Mike

Thanks, Umahunter. I checked out your post and got some good ideas for a stand. I am still waiting for my mill to arrive; it should be here sort of soon. I'll post some photos of my stand when it's done.

The very bottom is 15.75" X 24", it tapers down at the top where the bolts go through.
