What they are doing is contouring the sides, there is a palm sized cutter above mans head. The table, carrying workpiece travels the bedways, past the cutter, shaving off a hunk with each pass. The big chips are visible on floor; obviously a steel type material, not cast iron.
They appear to be tape measuring; I hope other 3' aren't excess material!
