Torque Workcentre at work.. #42: Slabbing attachment

1052 days ago by degoose | 15 comments »

Just received the video of the new prototype chainsaw attachment for the Torque WorkCentre..This is different in that the chain saw is mounted under the Machine… thereby negating the need to lift the log onto the table… NB. please be aware that this is the very first prototype and as such may have some issues… there will be furthur development and refinement as theses issues are addressed…With regards length of log…. up to 8 feet or so at this stage .. obvious...

If you knew Sushi.... #7: Setting the bowl into the board..

1073 days ago by degoose | 13 comments »

The divided bowl won hands down… so now to inlay or recess the bowl into the tray so that is does not move around.. Using the Torque WorkCentre, I set the limit stops on the x and y axies, and routered a square hollow shape in some MDF..bit hard to see here… but trust me… This is the shape that will be routered onto the Sushi board.. The template is then turned over and setting the router above a pin in the table, the outer shape is etched on the board..See the stai...

Torque demos... #1: A day on the mountain...

1093 days ago by degoose | 11 comments »

Got up early yesterday and headed up the mountain to Toowoomba… what lovely place… cold, windy and wet but still a lovely place. Took the TWC up to the Toowoomba Woodcrafters Club at their clubhouse/workshop located in the Showgrounds for a Demo…what a turn out.. over 40 folks turned up from all over to see the TWC… nice to have a group genuinely interested enough for quite a few to travel up to 2 hours to attend. There were members from the Laidley and Pittsworth c...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #33: What cutter?

1367 days ago by degoose | 6 comments »

In answer to a question from LJ Sharon aka PurpLev.... I took some close up pics of the Carb-i-tool 55 mm 3 flute surfacing cutter… this bit has 3 rotatable replaceable carbide tips…. as they dull or are damaged you loosen of the holding screw with the tool supplied and rotate 90 degrees to a new face… when all 4 are used… just replace for a few dollars each.This is a fairly powerful router bit and it is advised only to use it in some form of jig… such as the &#...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #32: Flattening a log..

1368 days ago by degoose | 13 comments »

I got this dirty old piece of log… actually half a log… someone had split it down the middle … with both an axe and a chainsaw… fairly ugly and unstable… Using MDF cleats I pinned the log to the TWC and ran a surfacing head over it… flat and smooth… cross cut the ends and rotated and bookmatched for legs.. drilled some holes with a forstner bit for some tea candles… nice centrepiece for a table..More pics of the finished piece here..

Torqueing Custom Torque. #1: Customising the Torque WorkCentre.

1373 days ago by degoose | 7 comments »

In this series we will be talking Custom…. a custom made Torque WorkCentre that is..A short time ago I was approached by a rather large Cabinetmaking/Joinery company with regards a special job they need to do…It seems that as part of a multi million dollar contract,  they need to make a variety of desks, both stand alone and with returns [ so this means that some have two gable ends and some only one..].  The desks were made from 54 mm [just over 2 inches] thick plywood ranging in...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #31: From one foot to four feet...

1388 days ago by degoose | 7 comments »

Have you ever wished that a 12 inch sliding saw could crosscut more than just the 300 mm at 90 Degrees [one foot]... how would it be if it could be adapted to crosscut up to 1300 mm [over four feet]... WOW Well that is just what the boys at Torque Workcentres have done… by taking the head unit from a Hitatchi C12RSH 12 inch sliding compound mitre saw and making a bracket to attach it to a bearing carriage they have virtually made the saw capable of cutting down the entire length o...
