Try this on a drill press!My son has been building himself a workbench with an incredible 3” thick, 40” x 90” top.He asked me how in the world could he drill the dog holes accurately. How about the Torque work center.As he was drilling the holes, he commented——————”I want one” Doesn’t everyone? Thanks for looking,Kent

05-18-2010 04:48 AM by Kent Shepherd | 17 comments »

Short of owning a CNC Router, I can’t think of a better way to cut dados. This is my first attempt at a video. I discovered what a huge learning curve is involved and hopefully I’ll get better. —Gee I love computers! With a lot of help from my lovely wife, here it is—Enjoy! Thanks for watching.Kent

Torque Work Centre #3: Cutting Slots

05-05-2010 05:13 PM by Kent Shepherd | 9 comments »

Here is another great use for the Torque Work Centre. I am frequently needing to slot pieces for various jigs I have built. Up until now I have been using the router sled I posted some time ago. That worked very well, and was safe to use, even on small parts. The Torque Work Centre does the same thing, but the set up and ease of use is much better and faster. Here I’m slotting pieces for wooden clamps like these I posted recently as a project.This is the set up for the flip stops to ...

Thanks for the interest.For more on this check out mt blog on wordresshttp://kentshepherd.wordpress.com/

Torque Work Centre #1: The Torque Has Landed!

03-04-2010 07:55 PM by Kent Shepherd | 11 comments »

Up until now, our friends “Down Under” have been having all the fun. Not any more. The Torque Work Centre is finally available in Lubbock, Texas. That may not excite you, but it certainly does me since I now have one of those fantastic tools. It is the first in the US, but I promise it won’t be the last. As degoose has already shared, we are a dealer for the machine. For information, send me a PM, and I’ll get back to you. I had the privilege of attending the taping...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #15: Cutting rings for bases.

01-07-2010 10:48 AM by degoose | 20 comments »

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #12: 3-D carving.

08-24-2009 10:19 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

This weekend just gone we did a little bit of 3-D carving.I think we were a little adventurous and we were only moderately successful. Did not really have the right cutters but over all I think It came out fair to muddling. I made a blank out of plywood glued up.. 400 mm by 400 mm by 70 odd mm thick, and used a sun face for the template.Spent a lot of the time scarfing out the waste .. would have been better gluing up a pyramid…. you will figure this out from the photos. [ lucky we had ...
