  • 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.

    We've seen a lot of changes. In March, 4 moderators left to start their own site. They took some of you with them. So now you have split loyalties. You know who you are. They didn't like my way of managing this place, and thought they could do better without me. They didn't. The only thing holding them together is that they hate me. Their site was down until mid July. That is why I wanted to stay involved on here until they could learn to run this place. But they wanted me to leave right away, without the training part.

    Anyway, 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 don't want to know about this place.

    What about the 4 moderators who were disloyal? I don't care. It isn't my call anymore. I would think that, rather than fumble, they ought to come back and do good work. That's up to them. If they want to return to try to lead more members to their site, I am done caring. I suffered too much aggravation worrying about it. I don't plan to spend any more. What they do impacts on them. I have my own opinions including those of you who followed them there. No longer my problem.

    I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

Today i stopped by the local scrap yard to throw away some scrap steel that has accumulated in the big garage. There wasn't too much usable solid round stock to buy for machining on my lathe but did managed to found this big air compressor pump, it's missing its big pulley but look to be in good condition, i did put on a bolt and turn it over with a wrench and it sounds like is pumping also picked up couple of old steel rims and few odds and ends. I did get hell of a deal on the air pump, not sure was it because i brought him scrap in exchange for scrap but the pump cost me 8$ all in less than 10$ for everything.

It's a single stage air compressor by the looks, pretty big in size, i can't find any tabs or manufacturer marks to look up specs.

2 pieces of 3ft long 1/2" stainless rod and 4 x 2 1/2ft pieces of alu tube with threaded ends - parts for making a couple of external window shades
1 piece of thick walled square pipe and a chunk of 1x3x4" steel, to make a vise "adapter" for my new work bench, so I can swap in and out my vise, a bender and a grinder
a 2 3/16" socket, just because it's huge!

After taking off the money I got for my turnings and a pound of copper cable I found at the side of the road, the lot cost me $9 :) I love that place!
