Smoothing Thermos Ice Spheres Using an Ice Sphere Press

I have several ways to make ice spheres at home, but the one that takes up the least amount of space is using a thermos and ice ball mold

This method produces nice large ice spheres but they're not as smooth and perfect as those made in the IceOlogy trays or big cubes pressed into spheres using an ice ball press

So I thought I would try using the ice ball press to smooth off the surfaces of ice balls made in the thermos method. It works only just okay - because the ice ball press makes larger spheres than the ice ball molds I have. They come out a little odd shaped as the fit is not perfect. A better size match would be better.
