I recently came across this cool video of a bar feeder and lever collet closer on a CNC Sherline lathe:

I couldn’t find much more about the project, but it looks like this fellow is selling these on eBay.  I think this is the first time I’ve seen a bar feeder on a hobby lathe, although surely someone has done it before.

I’m also a big fan of the gang tooling.
