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.
This ad was on Kijiji.
I have been shopping for a mill.....
(from the listing)
Milling machine purchased for use on car renovation. Project completed.
Mill converted to 220 Volt operation
Mechanically mill is in good condition
I posted that mill for THM members. I am looking for a mill but i have learned from this forum that as i get older,
heavy machines become harder to work on.
I am already to the point where even working on my little South bend lathes wears me out.
I hope that some one here hauled it to their shop.
