Category: Boring Machines

Boring machines are a useful piece of woodworking machinery commonly used for the production of smooth and accurate holes in a workpiece through the use of a spindle that houses a sharp instrument for drilling the hole into the wood. A boring machine may be needed for joiners and woodworkers working on wood pieces that require the use of dowels to produce items of furniture, frames or any number of other joinery components.

Most boring machines come with one spindle, these machines are common in DIY workshops and are used by enthusiasts for a variety of jobs, this is thanks to the spindles ability to rotate on the vertical and horizontal axes. Industrial-sized workshops and smaller workshops may want a little extra productivity, practicality and versatility from their boring machines – for these needs, boring machines with multiple spindles are available to those looking to step up their production.
