From my perspective, a running router on top of a spinning lathe seems scary. It sounds like an accident waiting to happen.

I’m not a big fan of lathe duplicators, but in this situation I think they would work well. I would take the blanks down to a diameter of just over 2” with conventional lathe tools and finish the job with the duplicator. You may even be able to rig up your own duplicator for an application like this.
