  • 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.

Wasn't sure which forum to post this item, but here goes.

There is a Harbor Freight item I always thought would make a nice stool. It's designed as a dirt bike stand with 1000lb capacity (item#67151 ).

Many times I find myself working on something that I can't get to a more convenient height, and my current stools are a little low (and seem to be getting lower every year), so I bought it with a 25% off coupon ($30 - 25% = $23).

I was pleased to find that it is indeed a nice comfortable low stool. It's height is a comfortable 16", it has cross braces that will support a tray for stashing tools, and even has a built-in "back pressure reducer" for those infrequent gaseous moments! :)

What's not to love?

i had one to perch my 01' Yamaha 426 on.
it was a really nice platform to work on the bike as well as park it .

for a few extra dollars, you can get a K&N Filter fresh air kit, for those moments of odoriferous emanations :eek:

I have one of these that I use to work on manual transmissions with. I put them in nose down on the center hole. Makes it easy to work on them. Definitely worth the money.
