« Part 13: 3D carving video Part 14 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 15: Cutting rings for bases. »

Check out the blog at Stu's Shed complete with videos. Look beyond what I am actually doing and see the potential of what the machine can do. No script, no rehearsal, no idea.. lol
These were taken when Stu dropped in last week.

Stu doing a bit of Slab surfacing.

Me using the copy attachment to copy an old english letter ” L”

Using the stops to route a border around the letter e

Aztec art freehand routing using the pin and changing the radius..

Lord of the Rings LOL

Just a bit of fun..

Great films Larry, do we coffee with that donut?
The Torque continues to amaze me… your skill at playing with that thing also continues to amaze me!

Thanks Larry. I’m working on a wooden copy of your machine so I need those videos to get it right. It will be ready by 2030 if I’m still around.

I subscribed to Stu’s Podcast. He has some interesting ideas. I’m really liking his use of the Magswitches. I’ve started to incorporate a few of his techniques already in the shop.

That Torque Centre looks like a real beast of a machine!

It probably just me, but the videos don’t show up. The spaces are there for the videos but nothing to click on. I don’t see them on Stu’s Shed link, either. I don’t like it but I may have to upgrade my browser. I don’t like the tabs at the top of the new browsers.

shouldn’t the title of the first video be “Stu doing a bit of Slab surfacing and goes deaf”?

Great work Larry. Why don’t you sponsor a contest to give one as a grand prize ??
