    I can get a good view of the picture unless I join the forum and I already belong to too many forums, sorry.

    In my latest Penn State catalog the last page had a sale on a long handle that accepted 1/4" shank router bits for lathe turning. Looked interesting but didn't explain it that much.

    I am a member of that forum, and the lathe is a great piece of work that will do much more than my commercial router lathe (which I bought used for $$35 but haven't used yet ) but it's just too much work to take on when I have actual stuff to make.

    That handle is for using a router bit as a carbide hollowing tool. I've not tried it yet, but it's my understanding certain router bits work well as the cutting tip on a hollower.
