Radius Ball Turner For Metal Lathe




What do you think about this video?

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.

Billy Proctor: everyone needs brass balls, great editing job , hard to find your adjustments

Archie Bunker: Brass balls are tacky. Stainless looks better. They don't look like cheap, brass trailer park doorknobs.

apophis egyptian: Scares the devil out of me every time your hand or the handle gets next to the chuck. 

John Fleshman: Wish I had a lathe. I want a ball like that only bigger (3 inch) for a walking stick topper.

Dirty D: Nice, I use a CNC machine. The results are better.

jose lemes Lemes: very good !!!!!!!!

Meuseraner: well done

Stewart Rankin: Great Idea, love the brass ball.

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!

TheManLab7: How come you didn't have to advance the tool? 

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

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?

Louis Alleva: I would like to make myself a radius cutter, do you have plans or drawing or measurements, to give me an idea to get my material and what kind of material did you use. Louis Alleva, Quebec, Canada

amrkorany: simple idea Excellent work tnanks pro

Hamzah Ally: are you changing any settings on the cutter while turning?

gtboomer: Excellent job.

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?

cristian camilo giraldo medina: GREAT!!

interplexer: Nice! 

horseshoe28016: Nice, thanks for posting.

Dab L: You by chance dont have a set of prints for something like this I am interested in making my owne

MrHeyDAWG: nice!

ryansuperbee: Just get a CNC... Done...

Jackknifegyp: Excellent. 

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.

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).

stringmanipulator: supercool!!!

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

OLDSCHOOL4JUSTICE: Great work
