In this review we explain how to make a desktop copy lathe for wood (you can create products on the copier).
The machine will do out of wood. The drive uses an electric drill.
Due to the presence of snap with two cutters and copy the template, you can carve wooden bars of different template of the same type products (candle holders, etc.) in large quantity.
Interesting idea! Lathe for workshop can also be done on the basis of the electric motor from a washing machine.
Start to work
As the base, the wizard uses a sheet of MDF. You can also use plywood.
To the lower part of the base lathe fasten the two screws a piece of wood. At the base of the cut two parallel groove.
In the next step we make the tailstock. Set the node on the pad, which is mounted to the base.
Additionally fasten the two guides.
Next, make a mount for the drill. Install it on the base of the machine.
Set the pin (screw) to move the pad with the tailstock.
In the end, will only produce a tool with two cutters. The top — to the workpiece, lower — copies the template form.
In a cartridge of a drill, the author set the mount to hold the workpiece.
Clamping the stop in the back of the headstock is also homemade. Made from a piece of stud and bearings.
Copy the template attached to the guide bar and pressed a wooden plank.
Detailed process of manufacturing a copying lathe for wood you can see in the video below. The idea of the author’s YouTube channel FACIL LH.
