What happened? did it turn in the vice whist you were trying to bore a hole through it?
Huge pictue resized - 800x600 is much better
You are pretty well spot on. I was following the G H Thomas words and music for ball handles and the workpiece moved whilst being faced off preparatory to drilling and tapping; if I had not hit the clutch so promptly I think I would have decorated the ball all round.
I should add a correction: the handle was actually intended for GHT's pillar tool. When I built the Quorn I used the form tool method recommended by the designer but then moved on to using a generating tool.
Thanks for the picture tip which I will try next time. Do you happen to know how to turn off the animated smileys?
