Default Make wooden balls

Just ran across this. Plenty simple to make a drill powered lathe, then make all the wooden balls you want/need. Neat. I haven't priced wooden balls in awhile, but suspect it would mean a good saving when you make your own.

Nah, figure I'll make one of these, for those long shots. They should go well together.

That guy that figured this out must be having trouble sleleping at night and while he is wishing that he could sleep, he thinks up stuff like this.

Great video Theo, thanks for forwarding it on,

Nothing. Which is why they are not going to get loaded in a cannon.
