Billy Proctor: everyone needs brass balls, great editing job , hard to find your
Archie Bunker: Brass balls are tacky. Stainless looks better. They don't look like
cheap, brass trailer park doorknobs.
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
TheManLab7: How come you didn't have to advance the tool?
ping ho: I like it,well done!
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
Lee Kelleher: 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?
TÂN HOÀNG: good
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
Josh Wilson: What is the maxinun diameter of ball u can tur with this set up?
steveu235: Nice job
Phil Abernethy: nice!
Erwin Woenckhaus: Excellent work!
venturadave: You can make your own brass balls!
QuantumMecha: how do you change the cutting depth each pass?
محمد الروينى: Excellent work but we need more (mooooore)
kwik440: very nice.. !
amrkorany: simple idea
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!!
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
ryansuperbee: Just get a CNC... Done...
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).
