I shall try to explane the working of this product.

When you moves your cutterspindle in A direction , the complete table moves except the two vertical peaces material at the backside ( E ).
From one piece to the other  is a ironwire attached that in the middle goes round a cylinder.
So when you moves the cutter , the cylinder will turn around.

All the leadings are necessary, because the spindle must move freely.
