I for one would love to hear more about the process. I am also intrigued by your ball turner – looks like it has a lot of adjustability.

Also what are the lines across the glues pieces ? Staples ? Do the pose a problem when turning ?

Thanks for sharing

Nice buckyballs. I would like to see a video of the process. LooKS like you used staples to hold it together during glue interesting. How long does it take to make one?

Thats quite a piece of machinery you have there to do the shaping. I usually like a challenge but this time I don’t think so. Would like to see a video though.

Forgot to mention about your great ball making jig! Where in the world did you find something that beefy? Make it yourself?

You have a lot of balls … I mean you made a lot of balls!
What do you do with them?
