Or is it ‘styli’?

Anyway, I have put together a gunstock duplicator using some commercial and home-brew components but am not too happy with the bits and styluses that I received. Essentially the router bits have matching non-cutting nylon or metal bits the same shape as the cutting bit, which trace the original piece.

Anyone know a good place to get these bits and stylus sets??

I found a place locally that will build them to order but they are pretty expensive to do one-offs.

What are the shortcomings of the bits and ‘styli’ (is that a real word :-). How practical would it be for you to shape your on stylus out of hardwood; you wouldn’t need to do all the detail of the original, just the dimensionally significant details?

Happy New Year!
