I was faced with making 62 tool handles for a project of making a set of carving gouges and chisels. The handles were to be of Purpleheart, a rather dense and brittle wood akin to Rosewood. (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/183218) I decided to build a duplicator for my Delta wood lathe using the article from ShopNotes magazine. I made it so I could turn short turnings like the carving handles but could add additional sections to the duplicator to turn longer turnings up to the full length of my lathe. The finished duplicator works well and speeds up the job considerably. I recommend this duplicator project to all of you wood turners.
