More Than One Of The Same Turning
when it's time to get your hands on a Lathe
Duplicator...a special device that allows you to create
a template (or follow an existing turning) and make as many
identical spindle or faceplate turnings as you need, quickly
and with assured repeatability.
work with a variety of different profiled cutters for making
beads and coves. Just mount your turning pattern and workpiece
blank to the Duplicator, select the proper cutter and go to
work. By tracing the special follower over the
top-mounted pattern, you'll make an identical cut in your
workpiece, mounted below. It's a virtually foolproof process
that's both quick and simple.
