    Holescreek,
    Any chance you could post your radius cutter plans to me?
    Regards,
    David

    Hi,
    Well don't know if you afford to send out another copy, or email a PDF copy. But I would sure like to make this a project. I have a need to put balls on the end of several conectors I make on the motorcycles I build.

    Thanks,
    CannibalJoe

    FYI, I have received 3 Private Mail notifications at my home email address regarding plans for the ball turner. I am presently at work, but will email them out when I get home tonight.

    I quit counting how many sets of plans have gone out after 50. So far I have only heard of one person who actually made one, a chap from Britain modified the drawing to use a shorter bearing so it would fit on his Myford lathe. If anyone else has finished one, it'd be neat to see.

    There is one modification needed that is not on the plans. At the end of the threaded rod that moves the insert carrier there is a rollpin shown if memory serves. That will need to be changed to a screw if you ever want to get it back apart. Good Luck! -Mike

    Man I'd sure appreciate a set of plans too. That is one well thought out tool! I didn't have an S/B lathe when you originally posted back in '06' but I'm glad drzipper resurrected this string.

    I sent out 7 more sets tonight but unfortunately there are two members I cannot send to because I did not get an email address. drzipper and chippindan. If you don't want to post the address here, click on my "holescreek" on the left and send me a private message. I sent the first group out as "BCC" (blind carbon copy) to protect individuals privacy.

    Mike,

    I received the drawings.

    Thanks so much!

    I will get a read-only copy of AutoCad and get started.

    I will post pictures as I progress.

    Sorry people, it has been so long since I sent any of the plans out that I accidently sent the original autocad .DWG files. For those of you that have acad, enjoy!

    For everyone else, I resent the drawings as .JPEG files. Sorry for the (my) confusion. -Mike

    Please send me the jpg files...

    AutoCad costs too much for me.

    Thanks,

    Joe, there are free DWG viewers online. The guys who make solidworks have one. Whats nice about that is when you print you get a much better copy.

    Hi,
    I downloaded the viewer and it works great.

    The diagrams looked and printed much better then the jpg files.

    Thanks again,

    CannibalJoe

    Holescreek,
    I would also like to make your ball turner, any chance you could send me a copy before this thread drives you bananas?

    22 sets of plans sent out since drzipper reopened this thread. Oddly enough he's one of the ones who did not send an email address yet to receive them. Thanks for the kind comments from those who have received them, and it's funny that the one question commonly asked is "What would I change/add".

    Just so that everyone gets the same answer, there are 4 things that would improve the design IMHO. 1) do not use a roll pin at the end of the adjustment screw. The roll pin is hard to remove to disassemble the turner. 2) Add a cover to the tool holder to keep swarf out of the threads. 3)Stops. I originally planned to add adjustable stops on the OD of the turner to keep it from rotating beyond center. I never got around to it. 4) Add a scale on top to use as a reference for radius size.

    Good Luck to everyone! -Mike

    s bronson. No comment but I will send you a set.

    kben77- No you can't have a set. (Until you send me an email address). See my post of 10/25 if you don't know how to use the forum email yet.

    I have been offered some space on one another members website to store the plans and DWG files for all to download. If I wasn't at work right now he'd already have them. Hopefully there will be an update soon. -Mike
