I used to sell precision ground plastic balls. The ones the size of these spheres were very expensive. I am not anywhere where I can collect rock. I would like to know what a rock of generally inexpensive material large enough to cut a 6" sphere would cost. I know the cost of a sphere machine from looking at the Kingsley North Catalog. I have always wanted to make spheres but now I am wondering if the cost involved might be prohibitive for me. At least I can make small spheres if I want. Now that I think about it, a tutorial on how to make small spheres would be nice. In the meantime I am going to try it the next time that I get my saw running. I only have a 10" saw so I guess there is another cost added to what I just thought about. I guess large spheres are going to be prohibitive for me unless I find (figure out) a way to make them by hand.
