With this type of ball turner do you run the lathe in reverse? It looked like the cutting tool was above the ball in one of your pics is why I asked.Another Ball Turner using a BXA boring bar holder with bushings and a cheap boring head. Added pins on the back side of the holder and adjustable collars to limit the swing of the turner. Does require the compound to be set up at an awkward position for the cutter to reach center, think I'll make a shorter HSS holder for balls under 2". First ball turned always becomes the ball turner handle right?
