If everything goes as planned will have it in a week to 10 days. The seller has agreed to deliver (he is about 1 1/2 hrs. from me) just need to work  out the details.

Well Shep when you get it all set up we will need some pics.     Congrats that is very cool and you will be turning things for a lot more than chainsaws.

You can  make boring bars but it helps to have a milling machine .I've made them,modified discarded CNC tooling etc .My best is a modified insert type CNC drill that uses triangle carbide cutters .
If you want to try it let me know as I have some pictures of same some place if I can find them ,It's not a question of if but rather where they are .

No milling machine.  Am a novice on lathe and tooling.  This is something I have wanted to learn how for a long time.   Will probably have lots of questions.

I would say a gearbox from a car or truck has been used too get the extra gearing gearstick base seems visible in pic my Dad used a similar system on many machines. On top you can see what seems to be an electric motor mounted behind the gearbox and driving a pulley on one end with a pully and belt on the other end dropping down to the large gear pulleys
