    Thank you guys.
    Mklotz, C-Bag And Jon.
    C-Bag I would like to turn rare hardwood, and small meteors.
    If this can get off the ground and working true and safely, then another one for true Damascus steel rounds.
    Very cool. Lot more to kick around.

    Thanks for kicking it around here Gabe. Learn something new everyday.
    Sounds like you're going to need a min of 4 machines, a lapidary saw, grinder, and the sphere machine for the rock and something else for the wood. You are going to be busy for a while hope you show us what you come up with when you're done.....good luck.

    There is another variety, that work on a production basis. They're called ''skew rolling mills''. A tapered helical 'screw' is fed round bar stock at the smaller end. The helix and taper works a lot like rolling meat balls between your palms..
    Most are used in 'ball mills' which pulverize various materials; for cement, paint, prescriptions, all kinds of stuff.
