I know he's got a foot switch. Possibly hooked up to a clamped drill?
The spindle steady is what one would call 'basic'.

That guy is called 'noho91' on YouTube and I have subscribed to his channel because he has a unique way of thinking about simple processes and I use some of his ideas regularly. Here's a link to his uploads (113):

That was really cool. I'm amazed at what some people come up with.

Can anyone tell me what that orange-foam backed sandpaper was? I've never seen that before.

Mike, you should be able to pick it up at most any wood working or turning store.  I know Choice Woods in Louisville has it directly across from the register in rolls.  I've seen it at Woodcraft as well.  You shouldn't have any trouble finding it.
