  • 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 was looking for something else and noticed on my Machine Shop shopping list that one of these was available new for less than half that... it's not like *I* need non-hack Swiss and German tools but I don't need to add "stupid" to the established list that includes "hack" and "insanely terrible welder"! Second time I scored a killer high end tool with a bad price on it there. I got a gorgeous $500 boring head for $108 last year too, also new. Now... if they could only put a box of "talent" out at a good price, I'd be all set!

Cool! I might have to have a little chat with the GLF about her definition of "fairness" as it relates to me:)
