    In the thread I linked to PM a boring head is used to turn a ball, but not as I've seen it more commonly done on a lathe with the boring head held in the tool post.

    Yes
    that's a nice idea....a JS way of thinking....
    Once was asked 'what does a machinist do'
    answer...."solves problems/makes parts by working with what he has..."
    Anyone can BUY parts....but few can design,work out tooling, and make them!!
    remember that when u make out the bill...LoL.

    Boring head fun

    I was researching some boring head information today and landed on this old thread at PM. Turns out it's a bit of a gem:

    And it kept getting better. I may have to get a bigger mill.
Working...
