The Home Shop Machinist – Your Magazine

The Home Shop Machinist truly is a magazine for hobbyists, by hobbyists. Our authors are fellow subscribers and readers, sharing their projects and experiences. This approach makes for a community oriented magazine with a wide variety of material. The Home Shop Machinist is your magazine, in a way that other hobby magazines just can’t match.

We make sure to include plenty of material for the beginning machinist, but we also don’t forget our more experienced machinists! Projects that will challenge your abilities and push your skills to the next level have been a mainstay of the magazine for years and, as long as hobbyists are working in their shops, we will continue to feature involved build projects.

The Home Shop Machinist is a product of Village Press Publications, located in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan. Created in 1982, The Home Shop Machinist was our second “metal” magazine, with Live Steam & Outdoor Railroading being the first. Other hobby titles we produce include Machinist’s Workshop and the newest, Digital Machinist.
