    Shot tower, is my guess. making molten lead balls attain perfect spherical shape under freefall

    If yes, then it’s a repeat qstn.

    A shot tower ? If so, it’s used to produce round shot balls. Molten lead is allowed to fall from the top of the tower, and it shapes into a round form due to surface-tension during the free-fall.
