  • 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 bought couple of drill bits and reamers in the same pail there was this, at the end there's MT2 to MT3 reducer sleeve because of which i bought it, it is obviously drill and holder of some kind but i don't know is it for steel or concrete, it has holes for coolant and cutting edges have carbide braze on. Has someone come across this type or know what is used for?

Looks to me to be for dirt. It may be the top of an auger.

Boring holes in tombstones for the bronze cup to hold flowers is my guess.

It looks like it has holes for coolant or water. Maybe a rock drill?

I'm also thinking rock drill, bit seams little weak for rock also the holder is very short.

Do I see a gap between the two shoulders? Could this be a hole for a pilot drill? In other words is this a counterbore to seat the head of a bolt?

Edit, fix typo

I finally was able to identify this drill bit, is call : PDC anchor shank drill bit, is used many by demolition companies for drilling holes for setting explosive charges, not sure what i'll do with it but is good to know is not for steel.
