The Torque Workcentre is FINALLY in it’s new home.
I will admit it has been some time since the box arrived from Australia,
good things are worth waiting for !
I was actually waiting on my husband to clean out the half of the garage he claimed as his,
because without this extra room I had no place to set her up.
I can’t really complain because in the process of cleaning he painted the walls and ceiling to reflect better light,
and he hung a shop light for me over the Torque work area. What a love.
Here she is -
I set it up in more than a few hours…I am slow…. and got a 3/4” sheet of MDF for the top.
I was going to cut the sheet to the size of the bed, 24” x 6’ 7” but decided to leave it at 8’ and use the extra as a work surface. For support under the extra length I built the case for drawers that will house the tooling for the Torque. I will post the cabinet again when it is completed. I have something special in mind for the front.
I am going to make drawers and put a door with a lock on it, so when we travel the tools will be secure.
It is a separate rolling cabinet that fits precisely under the height of the bed overhang. Somewhere in the process of cleaning up I misplaced the fourth wheel for the cabinet so it is missing one front wheel for now.
My husband just brought me home another wheel, I think he thinks he put it in with his stuff when he moved out of the garage. Probably, but either way he fixed it for me.
That’s it so far, will hook up the power to it with an extension cord until my husband runs some outlets for me.
I am very excited to get it running. In putting it together I was amazed at the engineering and the strength of the materials that went into making this workstation. It is truly amazing. Now if I can make something amazing with it, I will be really really happy.
Thanks for looking,
