I was searching through the travers tool website and stumbled across this.[Image Can Not Be Found]
It looks like a decent machine, it's said to be used for deburring and polishing parts with the it held in a 5C collet and a file or sand paper would be held against it. Reasonable enough if it costs $200-$500, but instead it costs $4050! I'm not joking, so why would anyone buy this thing.

Alexander, maybe it's for the guy that has everything but that. I found a steal for you at only $2600.

Reading the spiel on their website is seems to provide the advantage of rapid run up and stopping. I can see the sense in that, polishing small parts might take less time than it would take for a regular lathe to some up to seed, hence increased productivity.
As for the price, dunno, possibly a product of short batch runs.
