    That's such a cool lathe. I wonder what other kinda stuff you can do on that.

    That is the video that I had seen. Maybe my eyes are shot, but I am seeing some camming action on every rotation of that shaping lathe. What I would like to see is how they shape the hole in the ferrule. The other major operations seem to key off of the shape crated by that lathe. I guess the one advantage that those guys have is with the exposed ho wood, they just drill a round hole for the tang and fill it in later.

    I thought that was the video where they did the fitting too, but apparently not. In a different video I saw them burn the tangs in for the fit.
