Thanks to ARÀCNOCTAMBULO's Brazillian top post, I found a few turning videos I hadn't seen before.

Johnm, good find! 
I was actually watching them last night and planning on posting them too.
I really like the look of that 3rd top.

Thanks for posting.  It is GREAT to see how others do their turning.  I like the grinder on the lathe of the last clip.  Great idea.

As opposed to the table saw on the lathe in the clip before that!  Not so good.   :)

another top turning video.  A grinder is used to shape the steel tip and his home-made lathe looks like a bench drill press is used for the headstock.
