    Sgt Joe Friday, AKA Jack Webb, was also the investigator on the "copper clapper caper" case, as I recall. That famous case was discussed at length on the Johnny Carson show, you might recall.

      Yes he has huge number followers, I think he is high on desire, low on years. Though....
      not sure about you guys, but I would have wound that so spring out... and the stuck parts..back and forth, back and forth.... .has Always been my rule..

      I hope my 110 Miller will be able to weld like that. .

        A very nicely done video, his spin indexer has a satisfying clunk when he releases it.

        Stefan Gotteswinter did a video in using a boring head to mill a ball -

          A Deckel, I believe. The only one I've ever seen running.
          I cut it off twice; it's still too short

              Thanks for the vid. I have a great appreciation for craftsmanship like what he shows. And the vid is pleasant to watch (no music). JR

                As an FYI, if you are not too fussed about the diameter of the ball you make, you can use any tool that is hollow and has internal cutting ability. Such tools include a hole saw and a Rotabroach cutter. If you wanted a really large diameter ball, an insert shell mill would do it (the diameter has to be big as the hollowness is small).
