The Torque Workcentre can be transformed into a horizontal boring machine by the addition of a very simple jig…
I will let the video show just how simple it all is..

For all the Torque Workcentre owners who wish to know more about this jig… just drop me a line and I will send the plans to you…

very cool … wish I had one. Maybe someday. That machine looks like it would work for timber framers for log homes. Have you tried marketing them to that crowd?

I don’t remember seeing the price of the machine. Do you know how much it will cost us in North America?

Very nice Larry. No envy (for a change) as I have a horizontal mortiser attachment to my combi machine. that is a very cool feature though and I’m sure it can be used for many different purposes.

Wow! I wondered what that was. I thought it was a coffee cup holder (Just kidding)

I’m still gloating over the fact that I have the only Torque Work Centre in the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I keep thinking of new ways to use it. I’m trying to get a video camera soon, so maybe I can share some real demos. Of course the accent won’t be as cool.
