  • 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.

Lucky for you I'm on the other side of the country, lol. Apparently your forum name is correct.

Around here that would likely list for $4,000.

Ken,

You should call immediately and offer a "holding fee".

Go man go!

Being there has been no response from Ken I might have to gas up the truck and see if I can score a mill.

A couple strong guys would not be much help with that one would they ? The logistics of a move like that would probably take a couple days.

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.
