Mach 3 CNC lathe turning an Egg Shape In 6061 Aluminum

Turning an egg shape in some 6061 Aluminum using a Mach3 controlled lathe. The lathe is a converted Grizzly G4003 Lathe powered by Gecko Drives. I am Using a Groove/Turn Tool. The cutting is being done at a speed of 1000RPM, .035" D.O.C and at 5 IPM Wow 100K views and rising. Thanks for watching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Added Oct 6th 2012. Thanks to all for the comments...both good and bad. Since there seems to be quite a bit of confusion about the tool I am using I wanted to link to a couple videos that show people way smarter that me using a groove/turn used in a pretty similar way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qu5EPXfZp-I This is a video from Iscar. Here is another but you need to skip to about 2:45 to see the groove turn tool in action. Thanks again for all of the interest! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=WqLWUILM2IM&NR=1 Link to another video with the same tool. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q32CpZ3_a9E&feature=plcp

How to make a mini lathe in 3 Minutes
In this video I'm going to tell you how to make a mini lathe with the drill with the main role of a hand electrical drill. First of all, we have to make a bracing for the drill. It is good for foam plastic cutting, and shaping of the float. Small size and weight of the lathe, simple construction and easy usage make it suitable not only for foam plastic cutting, but also cutting of small wooden bricks. The third stage of manufacturing the float is over! The next stage is decoration of the float with the help of a hand made fixed-spool reel.
