  • Tear Drop Tooling Ball?????

    I have never come up against this before; I didn't even know they made them. I have a gauge that I must layout and it has a tear dropped shaped tooling ball on it that must be measured. Has anyone ever had to do this before, anyone have any idea how to measure such a thing.

      I don't have a camera. Just picture a year drop upside down. The small end is the base. There is a sphearical shape at what is the top of it but this has a flat on it. This sphear is what I'm using to check it right now but it seems like there should be something better. The diameter at it's largest point calipers at 5.93mm and 10.0mm tall. Here is a quick drawing of what I have .

                  the only thing I know that is teardrop shaped is the spring loaded part holders that are usually opposite a locator. These usually hold the part against the actual locator.

                  Does in look like this:

                    That looks alot like what I have, just add a flat to the top. But they are telling me it's a tooling ball. I also checked it is not spring loaded.

                        I was trying not to make fun of the polish
                        but it was a little implied- sorry

                        I think the these tooling balls were made from handles for a drawer
                        they must have been short of the real ones
                        do they unscrew ?

                          Define a ball

                          ball = sphere
                          these are not tooling balls
                          these are handles, you use them to lift up the gage

                          ROTFLMAO

                            i'm not really offended, i just think its funny how its ok to tell a polish joke, but other types of jokes like that could start a war.

                            heh, now thats something the russians would do, use drawer handles for tooling balls.

                            i'm not prejudice i just don't like lefthanded people.
