THE ABOVE IS THE OLDER TAILSTOCK PRE 1996. WHEN ORDERING INDICATE WHICH ONE YOU HAVE

NOTE: ABOVE IS THE NEWER TAILSTOCK, AFTER 1996

WE DESIGNED THE DUPLICATOR WITH THE HOBBYIST IN MIND. THE KEY TO MACHINING A GOOD PART IS IN SIMPLICITY AND THE STRENGTH OF THE TOOLS YOUR USING. THE DUPLICATOR IS MADE FROM SOLID ALUMUNIM, BRASS, HIGH SPEED AND CARBON STEEL.

THE PHOTO ABOVE IS A TYPICAL SETUP TO DUPLICATE A SMALL BRASS CANNON.NOTE THAT THE BRASS TOOL HOLDER IS FULLY EXTENDED TO GIVE MAXIMUM SUPPORT TO THE TOOL BIT.

THE QUALITY OF YOUR DUPLICATED PART WILL DEPEND A GREAT DEAL ON YOUR TEMPLATE, AND YOUR SKILL LEVEL IN OPERATING YOUR LATHE. PRACTICE WILL BE THE KEY TO PRODUCING GOOD PARTS. THERE IS NOTHING AUTOMATIC ABOUT USING THIS UNIT, IT IS A MANUAL HAND-EYE PROCEDURE. BUT WITH SOME PRACTICE YOU WILL SOON BE PRODUCING IDENTICAL PARTS WITH LITTLE EFFORT. STEP BY STEP ILLUSTRATED INSTRUCTIONS ARE SUPPLIED.CLICK HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS
