So far, a box cutter is not getting it done, neither a small "cutting" wheel from a dremel kit
Best so far is with ball held in a vise, and using a miter box saw to cut 2 1.5" slits in ball to form X. But this is a bit tedious for 96 x 2 cuts.
Thought of a table saw, but fingers would be too close to blade for my comfort
Tried looking for a dremel type cutter that would go in a drill motor, but haven't seen anything I want to pay for if it does not work any better than miter saw.
Any suggestions ??
