A Reliable Lathe Duplicator
Reproduce matching parts on the lathe every time with Vega's duplicator
Turning multiple matching spindles on the lathe can be a chore. If it’s one that you find yourself doing regularly, you might consider speeding up the process with a lathe duplicator. On the road at the Association for Woodworking and Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) annual tradeshow in Las Vegas, we took a look at the Pro Lathe Duplicator from lathe and tool maker Vega. Designed as an attachment for most standard lathes, the duplicator can be used to turn matching spindles from a template. See how the tool works and learn about its best applications in this short video, filmed at the Vega booth at AWFS. Ernie Conover is a woodworker, author, and teacher in Parkham, Ohio.
