I’ve got this wood lathe duplicator that has been sitting on the top shelf of my shop gathering dust. A friend of mine gave it to me at least 20 years ago. Its got that solid Made in the North American construction and I would like to put it ” in service”. From a little research and on line photos, it appears to be a Rockwell 46 840 manufactured in the early 1980’s. Has anyone got a wood lathe duplicator (not thousand dollar manufacturer set-up) and if so have the found it worth the effort? I’m going to find an owners manual go from there.

Well worth the effort for me. I can turn most of my work much quicker without it but when you are matching a spindle or working from a template it really shines for accuracy. Go for it !
