The Radius Ball Turning Tool is designed to cut ball shapes on a Steel,Brass ,Aluminium of materials. you can make ornamental balls on the end of handles, ball joints, governor weights, round contact points for tools, nose cones, and many other useful and decorative objects.
The Radius tool is sized for small to medium sized lathes, although it can be used with any size of equipment.
. Although it is versatile, the radius tool is basically a finishing tool, and as such, it is designed to take a large number of Medium cuts and of large cuts. However, using the proper techniques, even a large radius on harder materials can be produced quickly and accurately.
It is not difficult to use. However, it is worthwhile to review the steps necessary to produce good work:
Steps in using the Radius Tool:
1.) Machine work blank to proper starting size
2.)Set up tool in lathe to center height.
3.) Move cross feed out and then slowly in until Carbide bit just touches work when swung through range
4) Move cross feed in a few thousands.
5.) Make a cut.
6 ) Repeat
7.) above until desired radius is achieved.
Machining work blank
To save time, you will want to first machine your work piece to a rough shape approximating the ball or radius shape you are going to cut
