postal Posted August 15, 2007 Report Share Posted August 15, 2007 (edited) I know a number of you have made duplicators- I searched all those topics a number of times... I'm putting one together myself using linear bearings and a 1 1/2 hp 1/4" collet router. I'm planning to make my own stylus bits to match router bits I use, but what bits do you guys find most usefull? I was thinking 3/4"-1" core box bit for roughing, and 1/4" downward spiral for cavitys and outside body shape. Is this a good choice? I plan on making templates to run most work on this machine including routing PUP/electronics cavities, outside body shape, and *ROUGH* neck back shape. Also some of my guitars are highly detailed hand carved, and want to duplicate some of those on occasion.... and plan on using a 60 degree "signmakers" bit for those *rough* details, and finish them off by hand with chisels. Thanks, Postal! Edited August 15, 2007 by postal Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
