Great video, worthy of the bow that guy takes at the end. I have a version
of that same Dunlop lathe, though set up for electric motor of course.
Anyone interested in tools like this who is near Haver de Grace, Maryland
should check out the Stepping Stone Museum in Susquehanna State Park.
They have an original foot-powered lathe and other 19th century tools
on display. There's also a working water-powered grist mill in
another part of the park that they demonstrate during weekends in
the summer. The overshot water wheel, as I recall, is around 20 some
feet in diameter.
Better to be stuck up in a tree than tied to one.
