The "tool" reminds me of the English wheel.

A friend of mine almost bought a CNC metalspinner for "no money" a year ago. Decided against it, was worried he wouldn't be able to unload it.

He almost died when he found out what they cost, and what they get for them when they show up (rarely) on places like Ebay.

Bet health and safety would have a fit with that chaps hands so near all that spinning material.
It sure looks cool but I bet the skill factor is high.
