Its a double offset Vetco Gray (GE Oil n' Gas) tubing hanger being thrown eccentric to the centerline so internal diameter work can be performed. If you notice on the chuck there is a serious counterweight to ease the brutality on the headstock. Also, notice that there is a fixture on the part keeping the other end of the part running true in the steadyrest. The coolest part IMO is the nose hanging off of the end swinging around the boring bar. If you know machining you know that this is one of a setup. And for those of you in the business, shhhh....... trade secret.
