Considering a family of three-dimensional oscillators originating in the field of radio-engineering, the paper describes three different mechanisms of torus formation. Particular emphasis is paid to a process in which a saddle-node bifurcation eliminates a stable cycle and leaves the system to find a stationary state between a saddle cycle and a pair of equilibrium points of unstable focus/stable node and unstable node/stable focus type.
