Intro - pantagraph routing
My name's Dave and I came across this site while searching for info on panatagraph routing. If the note looks familiar, my apologies - I typed my intro note and clicked "Post" and the note promptly disappeared...so, doing it all over again but never know if the first one will show up eventually.
I'm planning to make a number of elephant-head corbels to place under beams and I'm thinking I could save a few years of work if I could replicate originals on a pantagraph. They'll be somewhat stylized, sort of proper proportions in profile (about 12"w x 18" h) but narrower than proper scale in head-on view (more Indian elephant than African). I'm thinking of carving separate left and right profiles in a size that would scale down accordingly on a pantagraph, then laminating with an appropriate thickness in between.
Just gathering info right now, I've never used a pantagraph but am looking for something simple that could handle relief of around 1.5 - 2", wondering if something like the Milescraft 1298 could do the job but have no idea really.
Any suggestions/comments would be sincerely appreciated.
Thanks and Happy New Year to all!
