Recently purchased two shopsmiths and misc attachments so I can get a little more detailed work. The duplicator is what I was really after but I needed at least 42” to work with soooo, I made a crucial mod to the shopsmith. I can now cut up to 64”.

Couldn’t get quite as detailed on this guy…

Of note: the stock pipe was in there really good. If Attempting this yourself be warned. Need solid pipes too, at least for the top two. To save $$ I got a hollow pipe and put a smaller less expensive pipe inside of it. Had thought about turning a piece of oak to make it solid but decided against it.

Very cool Dylan! Where did you find the pipe and what was the cost? I’ve been looking to do the same thing.

I don’t remember what the cost was anymore. I remember being shocked at the price of solid pipe though which is why I went hollow and put another piece in it. Found the pipe at a local steel yard.
