« Part 29: Sorry about that? Part 30 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 31: From one foot to four feet... »

Taking it back to the basics… how the machine works and what type of power tools can be used on the TWC.. Let us look to Stuart Lees from Stu’s Shed.

Stu … while still a hobbyist woodworker… has an engineering background ..and thus an understanding of how the TWC works and how it could be used by woodworkers as is shown by the videos he has made since he received his first TWC.

Now over the last few weeks Stu has posted a few videos of the basics of the Torque WorkCentre..

I rang him this morning and got permission to repost his videos.

Here they are…

Contact me, as an agent for Torque WorkCentres both in Australia and Overseas, if you would like to know how to adapt the TWC to your particular application.

Great demos. Wish I had space for one. I wouldn’t need a planer :-))

Fascinating unit, Larry. Add a computer and a few motors and you’ve got a CNC system

If only I had the room, and the money. If I were a lot younger, I’d ask to become the Canadian distributor.

Great demos Larry, you sure have a winner there. SELL the patent rights and retire to Aruba.

Toolz—-You don’t need to suffer any longer. There is a cure!

Simply buy a Torque Work Centre and then everyone will envy you
