Topic tags/keywords: lathe duplicator sharpening carbide cutter

I have a lathe duplicator that uses the type of tooling that I see on metal working lathes. What is the correct way to shape the tool and sharpen it? I guess it is basically a scraper but I’m looking for input from a person who has experience with a similar set up. THX!

Pics would help.

Diamond hone will sharpen almost everything.

It’s been too many years since I’ve owned a duplicator to remember, ...but you might go here… and see the basic shape of the tool. Hope I understood your question correctly.
