  • 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.

I have been eyeing the Pacific Tool & Gage reamer stop set for a while but the nearly $200 price tag has put me off. Instead of dropping that money on the set I used it to purchase a small BS-0 import dividing head and make my own. Now I could have done the dial graduations on my CNC mill 4th axis but this was a good excuse to add a dividing head to the tool crib. :grin:

The body of the stop was made for a specific cambering reamer. The graduated dial and lock/stops can be used on other custom bodies when I make them. The thread is 3/4-40. The graduated dial has 25 divisions so each division equals .001". Made from scrap cold rolled steel.

I bought the PTG (Lambeth) stop. It was overpriced, but it does work, exactly as desired. At some point the mill will be upgraded, to make such things for myself, but not yet.
Nice job!

Nicely done.

I use the Lambeth reamer stop, great tooling. Wish I can afford more than 1 set so I can set up for each popular cartridge, like Wylde reamer. Now I have to transfer the stop to the reamer in use

They look neat. Is it or do they have a goldish tint to them? What would you use a reamer stop for? Blind holes?

Gun barrel chambering, in this case.
