Mesmerizing Lathe Cuts Straight Pipe Into Wavy Pipe

January 11, 2017


This is a hypnotizing video (be careful watching if you're easily hypnotized because somebody could snap their fingers and next thing you know you're quacking like a duck in front of your entire school and you get so embarrassed when somebody tells you what happened afterward that you have to change schools and try to convince your parents to sue the hypnotist the student government hired for the assembly) of a 4-axis CNC (computer numeric control, basically computer automated) lathe cutting a wavy pipe from a straight pipe. Not a smoking pipe though, just a wavy piece of metal. I think it's going to be part of a sex toy.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who's about to be fingerless too if you don't stop toying around with that table saw.

    It isn't a pipe you Jackalope. A pipe would be hollow.

  • It isn't a pipe yet.

    um... I take it you don't know how a pipe is made. You don't simply drill it out to make it a pipe. A pipe is either rolled or casted. I'm talking about a real pipe. Not something you smoke out of.

    I thought crankshaft manufacture was difficult to watch. This makes me think reality is warping around the finished product.

    I feel like the use of YouTube's Anti-Shake feature make this video seem a lot more confusing and harder to watch than it should have been...

    Is that what that was? I was wondering what was 'off' about it - even with the wave something was just not quite right.

    Anyone else getting motion sickness by watching this video? I swear I'm gonna chunder
