from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Any apparatus employing boring-tools, such as the bit, auger, or drill.
- n. This term includes a great variety of wood-boring machines used in the building of cars and wagons, in making furniture and agricultural machinery, etc. They are named from the work they do, or from the number and arrangement of the augers. They are often combined with other machines. Many are automatic in action and adjustable for spacing the distances between the holes or for boring holes at different angles, and they range in size from a single-auger bench-machine up to very large multiple borers having ten or more angers making holes at different angles and of different sizes.
