Makes turning ball handles a genuine pleasure. This type of accessory was favoured by both Mr G. H. Thomas and Mr J. A. Radford. The current design is of "all steel" construction, with bronze bushes and thrust washers supporting a ground main shaft. The tool will cut radii, spheres and hollows from 0" to around 2" in diameter.
Suitable for use on lathes from 3" to 6" centre heights. Kit includes steel, bronze bushes and thrust washers, fasteners, HSS tool bit, drawings and construction notes.
The kit has recently been redrawn from a 3D solid model assembly and includes details for the tool profile and machine set up. A very satisfying project and tool.
