    Steady rest for rotary cutting. I like how he's superimposing the plans images onto the relevant step of the build video. 7:47 video:

    When I read the opening statement I thought "OMG! Not another deadly fiewood processor".
    Shortly into the video I see you meant AXIS. LOL
    I'm so relieved.

    Works well but needs to have sorting for least travel distance "cutting air".

    No, the long travel distances were done on purpose. If this is not the case and many cuts are made next to each other, the pipe warps due to the heat.
