BORING! (Horizontal Boring to be Exact)

One tool that is found as standard on the Shopsmith 5-in-1 tools that most American woodworkers are not experienced with is the Horizontal Boring Machine. With a drill press positioned in this manner it is very easy to drill into the edge and ends of workpieces for doweling and slot mortising. The biscuit joiner has supplanted this tool in most folk's minds because it allows for adjustments if errors are made, but with the Hor-Bore machine these adjustments are not necessary when care is taken in layout.

And if you think your Kreg Jig can produce a strong faceframe, you haven't seen strong!
