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.
Yep, pretty good deal. I can't say I've seen a Yuasa small hole gage, but Yuasa generally makes decent stuff. Think I have a Starrett and a B&S set. I am missing (grrrr) one of my Starrett radius gages, just never tracked down even if you can buy individual gages or not. Sure not going to buy a whole new Starrett set!
Yup, Yuasa makes excellent tools. I've never used any of their measuring tools though but I wouldn't hesitate to buy any. They make the telescoping gages as well. Looks to be the same design as Mitutoyo and Starrett.
I already have the small hole gages & radius gage set in Mitutoyo, otherwise I would have probably bought this. I do remember seeing lots of Mitutoyo radius gages sold individually on ebay so I wouldn't doubt that you could find Starretts. I'm pretty sure Starrett sells them individually. The Mitus look identical to the Starretts as well.
Edit: Just checked, Starrett does sell them individually & there's plenty on ebay too. Starrett's prices are cheaper than some listed on ebay but shipping cost from Starrett might make a difference.
Thanks, I'll check it out. I can't recall right off which one I am missing, but probably a popular one someone "borrowed" one time. I have one set of parallels that a half a pair missing too..... used to work in a shop where it didn't seem necessary to keep your box locked, and for the most part, it was ok. Of course, I'm not beyond misplacing things myself either.....I know both of those things have been gone a long time. Come to think of it, I probably am short a small gage block and a gage pin or two missing.
