    Not widely used, but a great machine tool. At 1:33 is an "Arter". What's odd, Arter is known as a vertically rotary tabled grinder, with a right angled spindle, not a vertical lathe. But it trims the spun discs perfectly and centered, with female/ male form chuck. Earlier in the process a circle shear does the job, but the blanks are still flat.

    What you're saying makes me wonder if the machine was factory purpose built, factory modified or customer modified.
    I have only seen one Arter in a factory (that made electrical transformers) and it wasn't being used when I saw it.
    I have seen so many machines that were modified from the original purpose/design, my mind goes that way at times.
