Been looking forward to this issue since seeing the online videos.
Did I miss it, what size balls are used 3/8"?

I just analyzed the ball bearings depicted in the author’s (Weston Bye) drawings and came up with a diameter of 3/8”. Due to the fact that the discharge and feed chutes involve a little hand-shaping, I would imagine that there is some range for deviation.

George Is correct on all accounts. I used 3/8" balls but the design would tolerate some deviation in either direction.
