Using a ball turning attachment
It is an easy way of making a round shape. Its main limitation is there is a very distinct limit as to the diameter of the work piece as well as the angle of the surface that can be made. It is really just a mechanism that cause the cutting edge to follow a circular path which is the outside of the ball being cut.There are two different ways this can be done. The cutting edge can turn in the horizontal plane or it can turn in a vertical plane lying along the axis of the lathe..
