Hope everyone is having a great Saturday.

I was nibbing around on youtube and ran across a video of a guy turning a #3 MT on his machine and he had some type of gear motor running a chain and sprocket that was mounted to his compound feed. I thought this was really cool and would may be of interest to some of you guys.

Someone may have already built on but it's worth sharing I think.

I thought pulling the swarf off with the lathe running with his fingers was not very bright...
