Default 'Barley Sugar' Router attachment



Looking for ideas as to the value of this router attachment? Barely used -- looking to sell to interested party here in Scotland, UK.

I guess check Craigslist or other selling sources in your area for something comparable. It's probably worth the effort to sell but probably just barely, though.

looks very similar to the craftsman router crafter, they still have a following. in the US I seem them listed for $50-$125 depending on contrition and accessories.


I own a different router lathe, they can be a lot of fun to work with.

They look so similar that my guess is that they were both made by the same compny. Just a guess, Trend ?

Interesting piece of equipment. Surprised I hadn't seen these before.

A very useful device for anyone who also has a wood lathe. It makes beautiful Barley twists. Below are examples.

Reminds me a bit of the Legacy ornamental mills too. https://lwmcnc.com/cnc-mills/past-mo...amental-mills/

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I've seen them go for $200+ on eBay before but that was before the CNC rage.

We had quite a discussion on these several years ago, after Woodsmith came out with one that you built yourself. My memory isn't that good and I didn't scan the posts in the linked forum to find it, but from memory the Woodsmith article as about issue #110 or 111. Again, this is from my old memory that frequently has holes in it. Go to this link and you will find more than you want to know about router turning. I believe near the end, an added gear allowed turning twists in both directions.
