We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Any serious carpenter should invest in his or her own personal line boring machine. They're invaluable for hinging cabinets or making pinholes, saving you a ton of time and frustration. The selections below have durable gears, a generous amount of workspace, and more than enough power to drill through even the toughest of hardwoods, so you're certain to find one that you'll use again and again. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best line boring machine on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 10, 2019:

With a dearth of available options, we included a drill press that requires a separate boring attachment on the list. While not strictly speaking a line boring machine, it's still capable of doing admirable work on smaller jobs, and is worth a spot in your shop. Plus, it's also a fine drill press, so it can serve double duty.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
