I am a flute maker and would love to have a lathe duplicator for my Jet 1642…something like the Vega D36 or maybe some other model would be great.Or if you had started making your own and gave up on the idea and want to sell what you have started or if you have ideas that would help me that would be appreciated

Thanks in advance!

I see various duplicators turn up on CL every now and then… sometimes as part of a lathe package, once or twice by themselves. If you are not in a hurry, keep an eye out and see what turns up – just be patient. I found a Vega pro-36 (D36) that way and they included the lathe and some other stuff as well :)

Cheers,
Brad

No not desperate ..just looking right now…How do you like yours??? Is the finish cut ok? I hear some say you have to do a lot of sanding.

It does leave a slightly rough surface – not really that bad, but certainly not finish ready. It’s not like any surface you would get with a normal hand held tool either – hard to describe it. And I’ve only used it on oaks, so other woods may be different.

Cheers,
