It's a LatheMizer...a toy...eerrrrr.....attachment for my new LT 28 WoodMizer sawmill. It comes standard at 8' and I got a section comin' to stretch her out to 12. This post I made was a red pine butt log that was too big to use for legs or railings. I was burning them because I couldn't use them, but now they are any size I want them. I can put up to a 16" log on there. The head is indexed and you saw it into an octagon. Then you fire up the lathe and take 1/16 on the cut scale per pass. the band blade acts like a chisel. I'm planning on doing a few more tomorrow and I'll get some better shots.
