Lathe Ball/Radius Turning Tool
I have a Myford and a Cummins mini-lathe and saw on John
Moran's site his mini-lathe version of your ball/radius turning
attachment for your 9x20. I made one like his for the mini-lathe and, after
viewing your site, decided I could modify it more like yours and use it
on both the Myford and the mini-lathe. I've made your modification (two
cutting inserts) to allow easier concave turning and have bolted a small
piece of 0.5" wide ruler to the tool holder to allow setting of the radius
by 1/64 inch increments. I can turn a ball 2" OD. It works great and the
addition of the ruler makes it easy to set radius.
Very nice work Bob, I really like the ruler !
Thanks for the pic & keep up the great work,
