Billy Proctor: everyone needs brass balls, great editing job , hard to find your
OldWayArtisans: Love it. Love everything about it. I've got a Grizzly G4000 and would love
to have something like this to fit the compound.
Silvinho Azevedo: muito bom...
Archie Bunker: Brass balls are tacky. Stainless looks better. They don't look like
cheap, brass trailer park doorknobs.
TheManLab7: How come you didn't have to advance the tool?
jose lemes Lemes: very good !!!!!!!!
Meuseraner: well done
John Fleshman: Wish I had a lathe. I want a ball like that only bigger (3 inch) for a
walking stick topper.
TÂN HOÀNG: good
apophis egyptian: Scares the devil out of me every time your hand or the handle gets next to
rob armstrong: nice tooling like the designs!!!!
KET TOO: Would have been better with a screw adjustment for the Y axis
ping ho: I like it,well done!
Stewart Rankin: Great Idea, love the brass ball.
QuantumMecha: how do you change the cutting depth each pass?
Josh Wilson: What is the maxinun diameter of ball u can tur with this set up?
T 2thferry: Very well done. I've watched this video 5 times in an effort to design a
similar jig for my own use. Are plans available?
Dirty D: Nice, I use a CNC machine. The results are better.
steveu235: Nice job
Phil Abernethy: nice!
Travis Black: Great Video are you about to show us some of the tools that you have made
in depth and how the work. Thanks
venturadave: You can make your own brass balls!
ryansuperbee: Just get a CNC... Done...
محمد الروينى: Excellent work but we need more (mooooore)
Erwin Woenckhaus: Excellent work!
kwik440: very nice.. !
amrkorany: simple idea
horseshoe28016: @irfp460, I think the threading attachment is just like using a die handle.
Put the lathe at the lowest speed, and turn the attachment by hand with
power off to the lathe.
Hamzah Ally: are you changing any settings on the cutter while turning?
cristian camilo giraldo medina: GREAT!!
gtboomer: Excellent job.
Dab L: You by chance dont have a set of prints for something like this I am
interested in making my owne
horseshoe28016: Nice, thanks for posting.
Jack Kramer: Very clever. I don't have the skills to make one of these. Could I pay you
to make one for me? Needs to be able to cut balls from 2" aluminum round
stock.If so, how can I contact you?
JavaAndroid: irfp460: The 'tapping-device' is not generally used with the chuck turning
- the machine is usually 'off', (although I have at times used them that
way for speed). You manually turn the die holder with the chuck stationary
(that's the reason for the 3 handles on the device). The main reason for
this tool is to ensure a perfectly 'parallel' cut (ever used an hand-held
die and started the thread off 'skew whiff'?).
JavaAndroid: toly: Yep it is very close, however, why such a complicated solution?
What's to stop the handle position being moved another 45 degrees
anti-clockwise on the swivel-base? (Mebbe I'm missing something).
Fernando de la Cruz: No se ve que es lo que avanza, si el carro o el pomo.
irfp460: The tapping device is quite dangerous, if it catches you could possibly be
pulled into the lathe
Cdabek: Thats a great idea!!
not2fast4u2c: they look alot nicer than those plastic ones !!! Nice Job on making that
