Jocks,
Got enough saved up to get a Powermatic 3520B with 50” extension.
But I can’t find a duplicator to fit it.
Seems the ones the Woodcraft sells are made for the smaller lathes.

Anyone got a bigger lathe duplicator or leads on where to look?

Thanks.

I’ve spent some time eyeballing the Vega duplicator which is reported to work with the 3520 but haven’t been able to justify the cost. http://www.vegawoodworking.com/ Not cheap but then you’re getting a nice lathe so :P

I’ll probably make a pattern copier first if I eventually get annoyed enough at doing it by hand (I don’t do a huge number of spindles so so far..).

Wow, that Vega is pricey. Congrats on a very nice lathe.
