Router Lathe Duplicator


This “Router Lathe Duplicator” is something which I originally built years ago, since then I have wanted to build a second version, making some much needed improvements to the design.

The concept essentially replaces a conventional turning chisel for a router which is fixed to two axis’ of motion. The router can then be controlled by following either a template, or an existing wood turning, allowing for easy duplicate turnings to be made.

Check out the following introduction video to see how this router powered lathe duplicator/ copier works. In the next article I begin construction of the duplicator.

Free plans are available for the duplicator below this video!
