That is slick !!!

I'm going to send that link to my brother, he does custom engraving(guns, knives, Harley parts) and it would be great for him with a small vice on top of the ball instead of a flat plate.

I had seen that before, but I had forgotten about it.
It's pretty cool.

I have a bowling ball in the shop I use for hammer forming. Aluminum and steel work nice with the high durometer rubber.
Thinking about cutting one in half to make some different size pockets and forming edges.

what do you think about that welding table? I'm in dire need of replacing my current welding table....wood and milk crates.

I imagine it's kind of flimsy. I guess it wouldn't matter if I had a sturdy table to bang on right next to it.

After 30 years of welding in the field and using fixture jig in production. This is a cool diy project!
