UNDERCUTTING TOOL

Dennis Taylor (Akron, Ohio)
>Can someone provide some guidance on making a tool to under-cut the top of a spindle for a Xmas oranament, so that it fits the round globe..I am thinking maybe a HB Freight tool set and using the 1/2 Spear point to undercut the cap so that it will sit flush?..is that a good tool to work this problem with, or is there something simplier I am missing..turn the spindle between center on either a chuck or cup center, any guidance is greatly appreciated..making tons of globes, but the caps and finials don't sit well at all, and look bad...Dennis
