Product Description

WHAT WILL THE DUPLICATOR DO?

For all but the most experienced hand turners, the Vega Pro duplicator will give you much faster stock removal, good surface finish on most woods and the ability to produce duplicate spindles that are exactly the same.  The duplicator will give you superb tool control, making turning safer, faster and more accurate.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The duplicator works on the same principle as a key cutter.  You either make a template (which has the profile of the turning cut into it) or mount an original turning that you wish to copy (4 inch diameter maximum for original turnings).  Excess material is quickly removed by locking cutters in-out motion and turning the handwheel of the duplicator to move the cutter along the axis of the lathe bed.  Then the last cuts are made, working from the high points of the turning down into the coves..

CAN I STILL USE CHISELS?

Yes.  The first option is to remove the duplicator by loosening 2 bolts.  The second option is to mount the duplicator on the back side of the lathe and turn the cutter upside down.  This gives you access to the front of the lathe for hand turning.  The third option is available only to those with a reversing lathe.  This option is to mount the duplicator on the front and hand turn from the back side of the lathe with the spindle reversed.  Note that some lathes may be constructed in such a way as to prevent mounting the Vega Duplicator on the rear of the machine.

HOW DEEP A CUT CAN I TAKE?

It can reduce the diameter by up to 3/4 inch per pass.  To obtain this deep a cut, a stout workpiece that will not deflect under load is necessary and a lathe with adequate horsepower (3/4 hp Minimum).

GREAT FEATURES

RIGIDITY - Results in the cutter being held firmly in place to achieve a smooth cut.

DURABILITY - Heavy construction and low friction material result in a very durable tool.  all wear points have mechanical take-ups.

EASE OF OPERATION - All controls are located for fast and convenient access.

ACCESSORIES

Slender Turning Accessory 1.875
A traveling steady rest which solves the problem of spindles whipping. (Because they are structurally weak due to their length to diameter ratio.)     This device bolts to the front of the Duplicator carriage and supports the spindle inside a large bearing with 4 opposing 3/4 inch diameter set screws (Handles up to 1 7/8 inch square stock).

Spiral Attachment
Turn the Spindle using the duplicator cutter and then mount a router on the duplicator.  The Spiral Attachment will rotate the spindle while cutting the flutes or reeds.  Has a built in 24 tooth index plate.

Router Bracket
Lets you mount a round motor router to the tool holder spindle of the duplicator.  Use your lathes indexer to position the turning for fluting.  New design allows vertical or tipped back positioning of the router to accommodate larger diameter turnings.

Diamond Vee Cutter
This is a high performance cutting system utilizing double ended Carbide inserts.  Advantages include superior surface finish on turnings, long cutter life, no sharpening, indexable for fast and accurate tool changes.  Great for most types of wood.

Special Cutters
The Square Shoulder Cutter is a carbide insert cutter for cutting clean 90 degree left or right facing shoulders.  It uses the Diamond Vee style insert to cut furniture knobs and round type shapes.  Both are indexable tools.

Steady Rest
This steady rest bolts to the lathe bed. It has 2 arms with soft rollers and bearings.     The soft material helps prevent the wood from compressing while spinning. This keeps the steady rest running smooth and quiet. This design is very good for small batches of parts or occasional long spindles.

Template Maker
This tool lets you quickly and easily draw profile onto template material form an original turning.  Simply put the master turning in the lathe and follow the profile using the template maker following tool.  A pencil then traces the profile onto the template material.  Cut your template and make your turnings.
