I’m trying to build a Router Crafter type tool but with expanded capabilities however I need to know a small detail what is the router carriage travel per revolution of the operator handle when the locking pin is engaged. When finished I would like the unit to function as a router crafter as well as a duplicator for propellors gunstocks and guitar bodies amongst other things

I have a craftsman router crafter that’s been hanging on the wall for along time,I made spiral spindles with it.
Is this what you are talking about??
If so I could get it down crank the handle and measure carriage travel ,or maybe it says in the manual
I don’t remember but I have manual

Send me a message

I have the Trend Manual who are the people who actually built the Router Crafter in England and they were Private Labelled by Sears for sale in North America but there is no mention of the feed on it. If it isn’t too much trouble a crank on the handle and measurement of travel would be very enlightening. Auggy53 my intention is to build a hybrid of a pantograph and router crafter .
Thanks All

I might be able to help.
I built a gunstock duplicator this year mostly from my junk pile.
It’s a major undertaking or have you already figured that out.
We might be able to exchange ideas.
Access to a machine shop is almost a requirement.
I don’t have enough posts to send you a Private Message but you can send me one. Kenny
