    these look pretty good, some of the guys that have them like them better than the roller handles as they say with the RH you have to be square to the press all the times and it can be hard on the wrist... the ball allows the hand to move around on top of it...

    Go down to auto-zone and get one. You can even get them that have eyes that light up, just need to add 12 volt power supply.

    I like the pool ball handles! They will look good on my LEE stuff too. I'll have to find some somewhere.

    Speaking of LEE presses, I can hear it coming...:rolleyes:

    If you have a local pub that has pool tables you may be able to acquire one there. If not a billiard store should have what you need.

    I have some. They are very comfortable in my hand. Last I heard AdamN over at Glock Talk had some 8 balls he was selling. Adam is a great guy, I got mine from him.

    Not that it matters , but the "cool" factor is way up there! (IMO)

    Got mine in today and looking at the pool ball it is drilled and tapped to fit the handle... probably need a jig to hold the ball while drilling out the pilot hole for the tap, then I believe it is 5/8" thread, not sure of the pitch...

    If I were making them I would use an endmill to bore a hole for a threaded bushing. and then just epoxy the bushing into the ball. Or bore a hole for the handle of my press and epoxy the ball right to my press.

    They do look really nice at that and have a definite cool factor as well.

    Guess I must be fairly well diversified 'cause I'd need them in blue, green and red. :D
