Ball Turning Toolpost Pictures
Here are some pictures from others who have built the ball turning toolpost.

Paul Belt
(Kansas Assoc. of Model Engineers)



I made an addition to the main turret. I marked the center of the turret and then marked off an inch each way.
I marked the cutter stand to the cutting point. It gives a way to center on the turning stock and also
a way to set the cutter for the basic dimension of the ball that you want to turn.
