This is a device that you attach your router to to duplicate/copy shapes, letters, numbers, etc according to the CL ad I’m looking at. Anyone have one of these, know anything about them? He’s asking $100 and says all it needs is my router to work.

Have you seen this video?

Someone in the comments offered to send the instructions to the video poster.

DANG, SASmith, you beat me to it. Couldn’t find anything on pricing in a cursory search, but this looks a lot more heavy duty than my old Sears pantograph.

Hey Andy. the ad I’m pulling up says $400.00. Is he coming down to $100.00? Jim

Thanks for the vid Scott. But I really didn’t learn much from it. I would really like to see one in action.

Jim, The ad I linked still says $100 on my puter. What ad are you seeing?

Andy—Looks like a good tool, but I can’t offer any advice. BTW, it says $100 in the title and $400 in the body of the ad.

I don’t see the $400 anywhere but I did get a vid that shows better what it does. Looks cool and not too expensive (I know that’s relative).

Still looking to hear from someone with personal experience before I dump $100 on it.

I’d love to fool with it! Looks like a bargain to me.

Lowes has something like that for the same price and it does a whole bunch more than letters. Check them out before going for this one. It is usually displayed by the router tables in a box.

Y’all have given me a lot to think about! Appreciate all your comments.

Jinx, The unit in question should be able to follow any template (not just letters). I’m thinking it might be useful for inlays, bowties, etc?

When I looked just now, it says $400. I don’t see 100 anywhere. Must be like a duplicator for a lathe.

here is craigs for that
there are 2 different ones
tulsa for $100
kansas for $400

they look like an early version of a cnc machine
maybe better than a pantograph
that uses your brains for the computer

probably wont carve the first one
but will duplicate thereafter
