    That would be brilliant if it isn't too much trouble William, but absolutely no hurry btw and I have the same lathe.

    Easy breezy to adapt your design all round in fact you have incorporated features I have never seen before so I call it innovative of you William and admire your metal skills.

    A quick picture of the main components. If required I’ll do a close up of the head parts.

    The jig works through a large angle so you can easily cut spheres without turning the wood between centres. This means you only have one “nub” to remove. In case you were wondering ... after trimming with a sharp knife you mount the piece between “cups” shown here to remove the nub completely and do finish sanding.

    I tried out the 9mm cutter today. I got a couple of catches with it and then I went a bit too far and the ball fell off! Ok though after some sanding. Picture a few minutes before it fell off! I think I’ll stick with the 6mm. And yes, I did have a quick hoover before taking the picture ...
