Vertical boring is a machining process whereby a part to be machined is clamped to a bed and a machining tool is rotated to produce some cylindrical, internal feature in the work piece. The cylindrical surface to be produced is oriented in the vertical direction and the tool is typically fed down into the work piece. A key advantage with vertical boring is that the need for a large amount of power to rotate a very large block of steel and the associated dangers are avoided.
