Hope this wasn't posted here before. It shows the internal turning while its happening. Strobe light action I think. JR

Thats a nice technique! Similar to strobe light. Probably matching the RPM of spindle with camera FPS so they can pull out each frame to create the video. Although its not a pure representation of an actual cut because its an interrupted cut.. but for an educational video its amazing.

Awesome video, thanks JR! They definitely make some great tooling.

I think it is strobe but probably synced to the z marker on the spindle encoder. Pretty cool.

Yes thanks for the video link JR.
Somebody definitely had their thinking cap on when requested to get a shot of what goes on inside of the bore during a cut.
"Come on kid, show em' what our tool bits are up to".
Novel idea!

It doesn't need to be strobe. It works on similar principles but its a digital camera. Probably high frame rate. So they simply have to match multiples of the camera's rated FPS with the spindle RPM, and they can pick out the frames in a nice number. It looks 'flashy' because they probably did some video editing to take out each frame that was the effect of the discontinuity. Just a guess. If I had to to do it, I wouldn't use strobe. I'd just match the camera FPS to the spindle RPM and then do software editing. Either way its really neat. First time seeing it like that on a lathe. I've seen similar videos for milling, but thats easy. They actually just cut the material in half for that so you can see boring and threading ops.
