  • 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 came across this today and was curious if anyone is familiar with it. It’s seems both big and small at the same time. The table doesn’t go up, but it seems the head doesn’t come down either. How’s it work? Quill only? I’m certain I’m missing something, but I thought If any of you knew what model it was, that might at least get me headed in a direction for reading about it. I’m not looking to buy it, I am just curious about it.

I do not see it as a jig bore machine there is no visible provision for precision measurement/location; to me it looks to be a "special" milling machine for production work.

Did not know they made one that small. Looks like a very basic machine, but being Cincinnati, I'm sure the quality is there. Mike

It's a special animal- the vertical travel looks limited- I'd pass on it
