Is the need enough? Or does the want suffice?

Been a subscriber since Kurtis and his wife Karen started making videos some years ago. That young man has skills far beyond his young years.

Yeah, Aussi's and their "sheds" are a pretty unique tradition. Some great work gets done "down under" in those small shops.

I've been wondering if there's enough work in my neighborhood that a line boring machine could pay for itself.

Not likely, that is pretty specialized work. First time I saw a portable line bore setup was when my friend moved his shop from California back to Kansas and was putting his shop together.  In California he worked for a large contractor that primarily did dirt work and needed a lot of those kinds of repairs done, often in the field so he had a portable line bore setup to make those kinds of repairs. Plus, I don't think at the time he had a line bore machine in his shop. Once he got his shop setup in Kansas he quickly added a line bore machine.

Prior to his return to Kansas I had never seen a portable line bore, but was very familiar with big line bore machines in the shop. As one might imagine the line bore machine is always busy in a Caterpillar attachment which was where I worked during those years. Eventually after my buddy was well established and doing mainly production work he sold his portable rig simply due to lack of use.

I have been so fortunate to be exposed to stuff like this through the years.  It is still fascinating to watch stuff like this though.

Funny, in the states one would say that he was working on a quick couple attachment.

Different countries and different lingo.
You boys better hold on cause I'm gonna have to stand on it!

This thread popped up again for me a couple of days ago and yesterday CEE posted a video of Kurtis unboxing their new WS2Plus line boring machine. It is similar to their existing WS2 but has a 50mm shaft, instead of a 40mm shaft, making it much more rigid and able to cut larger holes.

Italian machine tools; I'm sure it was expensive. Very elegant design though.

His talent and efforts seem to be paying off, and they must be doing well, because late last year he purchased a Sunnen horizontal honing machine for servicing long barrel cylinders. Those Sunnen machines are ridiculously expensive.
