For Brian's benefit this is a video of a bloke putting part of a tree

Reminds me of a Popeye cartoon from the 50s (or so). Conveyor belt with
large solid metal cylinders (say 1ft long and 2ft diameter) arriving at
a lathe which grabs each one and whittles it down to a small screw
which drops onto the output conveyor belt.
