Jerry use to sell the plans here, don't know if he still does.

The dupli-k8r is a tool/jig I come up with a couple of years ago.
it works, but it isnt a production machine, as you have to manipulate it by hand.
I still support it here in a private forum, for those who have the machine plans, but Ive since then put alot of work into coming up with a better version.
I'm having trouble finding time to finish the new machine, so I'm thinking about just publishing what I have so far & maybe we here, as a group could refine it into a nice machine to save us alot of whittlin time
Pester me enough & I'll get around to it
Thanks for the interest,

so does it like carve a block of wood into a bait that is designed from a computer or does it dulicate a bait that you put next to it on a stand and it follows the same design?

The latter TT,
its not computer controlled at all, but the new idea for the machine makes it hands free, once the wood is loaded in.
Thanks for the interest fellas, stay tuned, I'll upload what I have & you'll be free to discuss.

so do you use like a master bait then put it in the machine and it and it will carve the bait out hands free the the sames size shape... how about details like gills and inset eye holes

it wont do intricate details, lip slots or anything like that, but it gives a rough shape that should require a tiny bit of sanding. how much sanding I dont know yet
If your looking for tiny details, id check out this site: http://www.crankorgan.com/index.html
This guy sells plans for homebuilt CNC machines. look at the "Pooka 4th axis" (combined with the brute) this claims to do small details, but I havnt seen the plans, so I dont know how involved it is.

alrigtht thats pretty cool...as long as it can just make the basic shape than it would be great... the details and the sanding would be fine, i can't complain if it will take labor off of making baits

I think we will pester you enough to keep this post somewhere close to the top of the page so it will always be on your mind.

I know you said it was on the front burner, but how about putting a little fire under it.
Actually this post was start to slide too far down.

How's about it Mr. Jerry!!
