Looking for........

Perhaps a yr. ago or so I saw while rambling through youtube or some other site a pole lather 2000, Mike Abbott's creation modified to use a single pole somewhat more stout than the dbl. set up that Roy Underhill builds. And instead of being located in the lower bowels of the machine it was up on the back of the bed, the bed being a wide double board with sliding poppets. I am uncertain here, but two perhaps three rounds were attached and were radiused around the circumference to cradle the pole and position it. It transferred the motion upward and then over pivoting from an upright to reach over the lathe work with an arm. It was noted to be taken at a fair or other demo in Britain, does anyone have knowledge of this machine? I would like to see the foto again but numerous searches have not revealed it.

Is this the style you mean? slightly different to your description but does transfer energy via an overhead pivot arm.http://www.pinterest.com/pin/234257618091357177/
