      That's a minute of my life I won't get back!
      Was there a point to this?

          I don't consider that fancy lathe work at all but it is a very safe way to do it. Just a common sense method of boring the cylinder that is done at many shops. It's one of a few ways to do the job.
          It's only ink and paper

            I feel the same. OP , want to come back and explain what was so fancy here? Did you understand what was being done?

              I dont know whats so confusing about what is being done, or calling it a waste of time either. I see stuff like that and even though I may not have a use for it at the moment, I catalog it in my head and someday I may have something similar to setup and hopefully I'll remember it.

              I think "fancy" probably wasnt the best choice of words, but maybe the op had never seen anything like this and was curious if it was a safe way to do it, etc.

                Well said, mochinist.

                Some people's responses were rude to say the least.

                  Fancy maybe not, but quite interesting.

                  Like Macona said, it's something that you file away.

                  I had personally not seen anything done in that manor before.

                  As for the rude comments, there are a lot of people here who are obviously better suited for practical machinist, where the crabby burnt out professionals hang out.

                    So for us rude, crude types who should go back to PM, What was notable about it?
                    I'm not even sure of what I' seeing and there is no explanation. The boring bar appears to pass through the work piece and chuck to what? The left end of the spindle has something in running about 3/4" off center so I would assume that has nothing to do with the boring bar.

                    So speaking of rude, how about popping some totally unexplained, unremarked , scrap of video and saying "discuss".

                      I cut it off twice and it's still too short!

                        I must agree,not fancy. Simply not remarkable in any way,and I'm not a burned out pro for saying it. It's just true.

                          I would consider myself very much an amateur ...... possible not even that qualified, but would still consider that to be a "normal" operation.....
