For horizontal boring a ShopSmith works very well. Used ones are readily available at some very good prices. Since you would be buying it to use as a horizontal boring machine, virtually any machine will do.

A ShopSmith can take up a lot of room in your shop, but it is easy to shorten the tubes and create a more compact unit and they all come with wheels so they can be moved out of the way.
