« Part 4: First cut of the demo video shot this week. Part 5 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 6: Bloopers »

Self explanatory heading, changing attachments is as easy as loosening a bolt.
Here are just a few very short vids of the different attachments being changed.[As requested by Lisa aka Dustbunny.]

..

Locator pins make it easy to attach. This one is for the router.

..

..

Tightening the bolt from the rear.

..

..

Adding the copy attachment bracket.

..

.. Using an allen key to tighten up through the access hole in the bracket..

..

..

Adding a dust extractor shroud

..

;; Easy to fit.

..

..

Attaching vacuum hose to shroud.

..

Easy to remove for bit changes.

..

Attachment for the drill...can also be used for a die grinder.

..

.. Putting the drill in the bracket.. like I said self explanatory really,

..

This saw attachment will suit just about any saw. Once it is set it is better to leave it in the cradle for future use as needed. It can still be taken out if the saw is needed to be use by hand.

.. ..

Adding the bracket to the carriage can be handled by one person but I had three hands for this shot.

very well engineered. my compliments to the chef. I have never seen this kind of mounting to routers. is this the way router lifts work as well?

The plunge assembly is removed from the router and then fits on the pins. I think some router lifts work similarly?
Plunge is now done by the machine not the router and is lockable by turning the knob on the end of the lever.

Ok mate. Do you want the rate for the machine I have or do you want a different configuration. ie length and outfeed can be changed.

Thanks for the comments.
It is a very versatile and easy to use machine and the changing of the attachments is that easy, as you saw.
David I will let you know.

Nice Larry,
This looks easy enough for even me to do. Thank you for the rapid response to my question, I can tell how excited you are about this work station, and I can see why !!
I did a search for the website for the workcentre. The only thing on their website is the SlabMaster and the WorkCentre- but it’s not like yours. There are no prices or descriptions of attachments and such. Sign me up for more info, I am very interested.
Thanks for all the demo vids these are product sellers, I WANT ONE : )

This is a super tool Larry Even though it seems to have everything I didn’t any demos of the actual bells or whistles in your videos.
