Lathe Duplicator

4 posts in this topic

Well, I finally got my duplicator finished and I must say a big thanks to fishing bum wannabe from who I originally developed (ho'd) the ideas. It works great and the pics should tell the story. The cutter and guide pin do need to be in vertical alignment.

That's a time saver. How many templates do you have? Do I sense SS Lips and through wiring in your future? The "Ho'd Thing was the tip off>

What are you using for a cutter and guide, and what was the alignment process for them? TIA

Husky, so far just the one template - I just wanted to try it out. The Ho'd thing was the reference as you suspected - gotta give credit where it's due.

Not sure about SS lips just yet - one thing at a time.

Okay the cutter was an old 1/4 x 1/4 cutter from an old machine at work. The guide pin is a carraige bolt. The bolt passes thru two nuts located in the cutter assembly. The double nutting allows for fine adjustment and re-calibration should the cutter be moved. The guide pin is located centrally in the height of the template and also directly underneath the cutter.

This makes things so easy. The test blank was shaped from square stcok in less than 5 minutes. All that was left to do was some final sanding.

Now I need to get Jerry's duplik8r built and going.
