Topic tags/keywords: question lathe

I have seen, but don’t remember where, an 18” (or so) hollow tool steel pipe set up with a shop vac adapter that effectively collected the chips from a spindle roughing operation. A relatively short length of tool steel tube was welded to the end of a longer mild steel pipe and sharpened like a roughing tool. Google cannot find it, or I don’t know what else to put in the search field. I could not find any information on LJ, but not saying it isn’t there…I just can’t seem to find it.
Does anyone know where I can retrieve the information to buy one? It was being made for sale for about $80 if I remember correctly.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Damn, now I want one myself. The huge messes I make when rough turning things would pretty much go away, sounds amazing.
