If so, I'm not following the pictures, and I think I'm a fairly mechanically oriented guy.
That roto-tool looks like the little handheld units I use at work, on steroids, they are very high rpm, 22,000 I believe.....what spindle speed do you use on the lathe, fast, med, slow? I'm picturing a blizzard inside your garage.
OK, upon further review, I see the bearing riding along the edge of the template, and can see how it works.....sort of.
