Piney,
Where did you find that picture ?

My guess from the castings behind that fella and the massive turn buckles that hold that fixture down and the gantry crane that setup was to true up those castings. It looks like he is truing up that wheel. Heck as big as it is even if it was only spinning at 50 rpm the surface speed would be outrageous fast.

It wouldn't have to be turning very fast to blur what with the shutter speed of that camera.

The picture came from the antique and vintage tool society group on Facebook. It's a public group with a lot of odd stuff.
