Steel and brass 8 ball


Recommended Posts

Watched it last night while flicking through You Tube, Any idea what the attachment was that finished off the ball, Never seen anything like it, not that you get a good look at it. Never had anything like that when I done my apprenticeship .

No idea. Looked like it took a long time though.

You normally get an idea of how long it takes to make on the video's by the makers change of clothes obviously if they work on it consistently.

I have to get a full make of a knife edited down to 12 mins, Takes me about a week to make a knife if I work on it every day. so either edit and crop the hell out of the video or like everyone else time lapse it. But even then can't get it down to 12 minutes.

**** that's spooky. 

I went onto Youtube earlier and it recommended this video to me. I watched it and then I come on here and... 

It's funny how they recommend certain videos. I thought it was based on your search history, but mine is mainly dogs on skateboards and people falling over. :lol:

Looks like an offset boring head to me, being used in an imaginative way!

Id agree offset boring head. Lots use them on lathes as ball urning attachments when fixed. Much better seeing it on the mill.

Nice bit of file and Emery work getting it round, easy to cock up and go to far. Some clever people on YouTube.
