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
