Summary:

Make an 8 Ball Out of Solid Stainless Steel and Brass
I have always been impressed by all the projects on this guy's Youtube channel, but this project takes the cake. His mix of art, shop skills, and engineering skills are awesome, and the video is great fun to watch. No question, just sharing.

Very cool, thanks. I like that he doesn't voice-over, just uses brief subtitles to explain some of the steps. The start of the video reminds me of the movie "Patton". :smile:

Machining a perfect sphere in a lathe and mill is a remarkable achievement.
Continuing the spherical shape by hand, using a file and obtaining an almost perfect shape is even more remarkable.

Thank you for posting it, @anorlunda. :smile: 👍

That is definitely one of the best things I have seen for a while. That is either because I haven't been getting out much, or because it is such a good job. I would say a bit of both, but a hell of a lot more of the "good job" part. I love it.

That isn’t too cool. It’s at least a three or four.

You know how it is, get a demerit and the powers that be start looking for ways to get you. True scientific behavior.

I hope that's a joke. It not only isn't true, it is offensive.

My experience is that the monitors are fair. Newcomers sometimes are put off by the directness of some replies but it is never personal.

Hmm... Looks like @phinds has lived a rather cloistered life!
