Description:
In 1783, William Watts of Bristol took out a patent for a process "for making small shot perfectly globular in form and without dimples, notches and imperfections which other shot hereto manufactured usually have on their surface".

By pouring lead into a sieve, and letting it cool as it falls, the lead forms into a perfect sphere before falling into a water tank at the bottom.
