    Engineers merchant didn’t sell steel balls either. I’ll have to file a bit of scrap steel to be almost spherical :D

    Bearing factors sell individual steel balls for bearings, buy a bearing ball online, put it into the heart of a barbecue, leave it until morning to normalise, and you have your soft ball!

    Cheers, Matthew, a fellow Denbigh drill owner!!

    I need just one ball for the locating of the backgear handle. It’s spring loaded but the grub screw and ball were missing. To my delight however the spring was not - it was gummed up inside stuck to the shaft. Result!

    By the way, I should have offered earlier, if you need me to measure anything like the détente ball , I'd be happy to oblige!

    Cheers, Matthew
