Terry that is real impressive!

Any possibility of posting plans and where you bought the supplies so us mechanically challenged woodworkers can give it a try?

Well, Mike,, the rails were made out of 2 inch standard exhaust pipe,, and the rest was pretty much made up of materials that I scrounged up and machined into what I needed,, I kind of have access to machine tools and a pretty good back round in machine shops, that made it possible to fabricate what I needed. I searched on the net and seen a machine like this and worked off that,, but, NewMontanaworkshop posted a machine that I did not see in time and now that I have built the one you see,, I like his design better,,, IT would be easier to build, I think,, and should work every bit as well.

Hi folks, here's a different one I made. Includes vertical adjustment using routers plunge action and levelling adjustment created by old car scissor type jack mechanism. Also twin bicycle handbrakes, one for each slide. Biggest cost was stainless cross slide rail and linear bearings. All up $AUS.350. Works a treat.
regards, Lionel.

Nice !!!!,,, Lionel.....I always have time to show my respect for some one that can take some cast off junk and turn it into a useful Item that you can create even more with.
I have been kind of forced into completing another project I started, so I have not had time to play with my duplicator yet,,, if you have had yours a while,, and it looks like you have,,basing it on the marks on your table,,, maybe you could post a few pictures of what you have produced with your duplicator,,, maybe it will inspire others to attempt to build one of these neat machines.
Once again,,, Nice job...

Hi Jeff,, well sad to say,, I have not had time to fool with that duplicator yet,,, it got stuck in the corner of the pole barn and I moved on to some other projects,, and I have been working a lot of over time, lately on my job,,, WE have been collecting some nice logs to cut up for lumber,, and even that is hard to get to,,, So many things to do,, and just not a lot of free time to get at them. But you asked what I would do again,,, I did take a look at the machine that New Montana Workshop mentioned,,, back in post number 12,, I did like that design better then the one I made. I even was able to scroung up some parts that I would need to make one along those lines,,, I was able to find some old bearing rails that were nice and heavy and about 9 feet long,, I was able to get those along with the heavy bearings that fit those rails.,, Some day,, when I get time,, maybe I can remake that machine like the one he mentioned,,,,, ah yes,,, some day,,,,

Hi Terry

I have the one below It's not in the same league as yours but it will do about the same as yours and do it well for about 100.oo bucks but I only paid 25.oo for the one I have from a garage sale but they go for 100.oo or so on eBay...

Hi Terry

"Those look like cast aluminum pulleys at the end of the anxle ?"

You'er right on ,but not the normal pulleys they ride on a 1/8" wide angle steel track, there is a spring loaded cable that keep them in place and true..
It will do 3D,flat,and many other jobs.
I have the manual but it's 17mb and it shows how to set it up and how to use it.

At one time I had a 4 head router duplicator but it was so big I had to sell it off but this little will do the same and more ( 3D stuff,rope fluting,etc.) but it has one draw back It can't do the big items (longer than 24" long without resetting the stock) and 12" wide .. but other than that it's a great machine....
Sears made it for the home shop user and with just a bit of rework it works great, the one big draw back is that came with a Craftsman 1/2 HP router but I took that off and use a V.S. RotorZip that can take on the bull nose router bit for craving small items.
Signs,etc.

Below you will see a link to some of the pages from the manual
