Ball turning attachment. - toglhot - 11-23-2017

This is a ball turning attachment I made. I used a vertical slide on my lathe for miilling operations. I wanted a turner that I could mount in the tool post and one that could be used either in front or behind the works. Adjustment is via a sliding post locked in place by an allen screw. It will turn balls up 50mm. Like a lot of tools I've made for the lathe I don't really have much use for it but it was a fun project and works well.
