Thanks fellas.
the duplicator is just a run of the mill offshore rig . I paid about $100.00 for it and it seems to do a reasonable job for small stuff at least.
The bigest problem duplicating is getting all the segments the same length. The rest is in the details.

OOOOO no not again. I can’t make this.
YOU MADE ALL THE PIECES!
What a wonderful chess set. You have made an heirloom.
I’ve been wanting to make a chess set but my skills are still not developed enough to do this kind of work and
I need more power tools to help me. Thanks for showing the way.

Bob, I love chess boards and have made a couple feeble attempts of my own, but this one is just outstanding in design and construction. Not to mention the pieces! Great job!
