In operating with this rest, the base being adjusted to the lathe in any of the usual modes, the ball to be turned being placed in the lathe, the set-screw G is arranged so that the feed may be graduated as the work of turning progresses by successive cuts. The point of the cutter being placed against the ball to be turned, the pivot being under its center, the tool is turned with the progress of the cutter, so that by the revolution of the ball in the lathe it will be turned into a perfect sphere.
