Is This The Biggest Lathe on the Internet? Heavy Engineering!

All we can say about this lathe is… WOW!

We know any machine shop that expects to stay in business needs a lathe on hand to help machine parts, but this thing is in a league of its own. We really can’t even imagine what would necessitate such a monster machine, but we are excited to see it in action. Unfortunately it appears to be out of service in this clip, meaning we just get a glimpse of its size, but don’t get a look at it in action.

We’d love to see footage of this thing slinging chips so whomever out there knows where this thing is installed, we would love to watch it spin up and sling some metal chips if such video exists.
