I winced when he turned the lathe on - way too high a speed for an off-centre mounting of that size. You are right, it should have jumped off and killed him

That video on "punk turning" popped up when I was searching for this vid. Now this is HOW to do it.

Notice how this turner emphasises the need to take "light cuts" - pity the punk turner didn't watch this first.

Ah, the youth of today - when I was his age I was doing sensible and safe things like representing Queen and country in the Falklands

I'm so sorry, but that has to be the most funny thing I've seen in weeks. I laughed so hard!!
I've been laid off for three months and I needed a pick-me-up!

Obviously a receipt for disaster!
