      There's a close equivalent used for woodworking. It's called a "legacy mill." I've had occasion to repair/improve one for some woodworker friends a couple of years ago. The machine is basically a long bed with head and tail stocks and a set of slide rods for a router. The router's "x" motion is coordinated to rotation of the spindle, so you can cut spirals, etc.

      My friends had the model 900 (msrp ~$1500), which may not be available any more.

      The only current model I could find was the "Evolution (~$3000).
