Default Pantograph for inlay work

Today I finished the pantograph I designed for doing inlay work on guitars. This is for use with my Dremel and flex cable. I did one simple test with it and that worked fine but I'll do some more before I cut into some nice exotic wood or Abalone.

It's very smooth and precise so I'm pleased with that part of it. It will do 2:1, 3:1, and 4:1 reductions.

Yikes that looks like it took some exacting work to produce I'd like to see the results of your tests either way they go.

Had some time to test the pantograph and put up a little video of my first test - works pretty good so I'm pleased with the result.

Very nice work David.

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.

Added a micro adjustment to my pantograph. 1/4 turn of the adjustment on the stylus equates to 0.004" depth of cut change at the cutter bit (on the 4:1 reduction, that is).
