« Part 3: Surfacing an endgrain block. Part 4 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 5: Ease of use.. changing attachments. »

You guys are seeing this video while it is still in the editing stage,, no voice over but there will be.
Hope you see the versatility and adaptability of the wee beastie. If you have any questions , I will be happy to answer them and If I don’t know will find out. This was a nearly 400 meg video.. but by splitting and compressing to Mp4 got it down to a fairly acceptable size. I have 117 small segments that deal with things like adjustment and fitting of various attachments for those who want to see more.. just let me know if there is anything that you would like to see in more detail.. If I have it I will post.
Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Larry, I’d like to see it in my garge to see if it works as well right side up as it seems to work upside down ;-))

did the company that make hire you to make videos for them?

Bob, I am sure that the machine works just as well down side up and no they did not hire me to make the videos, I wanted to,
...And what did you really think of the machine?

Looks like it is a lot better do it all than a shopsmith. Very versitle, I think i could rough out rifle stocks with it. Probably not like a duplicator, but get rid of a lot of unwanted wood.

You should sell the vids to them for promotions featuring Lazy Larry designs. You could end up with a free machine ;-))

Cool videos. They really show off the machines versatility and ease of use. I can see why you volunteered to do these videos. The machine is awsome and you get to pick the brains of the company reps to help shorten the learning curve. Your a lucky guy my friend.

Rick I am actually teaching the boys.[Aaron and Luke.].. Keith on the other hand is the genius behind the machine, and we are all learning from him.
Moshel the oval is done as an over head pin router.. the pin is in the table and the template is underneath and runs around the pin… the router bit is directly above the pin so where the pin moves the bit cuts. i.e. the blank is attached to the template with double stick tape.

Thanks for the peak at the new machine.
I looks like a real asset in a small production shop.

Wow Larry,
These are awesome videos !! I was wondering how long it takes to switch between attachments, and how you change from say the circ saw to the router. This would be another feature I would want to see.
Get the camera rolling!!

Larry, That has got to be one of the most versatile machines I’ve ever seen. Like Bob said, better than the Shopsmith. And I have to agree with David, you are a lucky guy. Do you know if they have plans to market it in the US?

Larry, AWESOME MACHINE, this machine could almost replace all other tools in the shop, ten years ago I would have bought one, but now I think I would have to get a divorce first, and I don’t want to do that,......or maybe….. well,... let me think about that…...
