Hey Jerry, are you watching, SEE that 'square chuck' I have been talking about - I'm thinking it is the same, or very similar to 'Rapala's' machines - great job whatever it is.pete

Central NC includes Lexington and Thomasville, furniture making centers where many factories have gone bust in the last 15 years. It would not surprise me if the duplicating lathe had been used for making furniture legs once upon a time.

Of course. The order in which things were shown must have confused me. Thanks for enlightening me.

Do you think you can only use Balsa on those machines or are they able to handle something harder like basswood and cedar?

Such machines are used to carve cricket bats and table legs, so I guess the answer is yes.
I would probably turn the feed rate down and stand well back for the first run though.

I own the machine in the video. It's a homemade machine that I purchased used. I can cut baits out of balsa, cedar,basswood etc. If anyone is interested in unpainted bodies just let me know.
