Topic tags/keywords: mill-route carver

I posted this in another forum in hopes of getting a lot of feed back. Does anyone know about these or have one or have the manual?
When I was at one of our wood workers club meeting I mentioned I wanted to build a Pantograph for my router to do some carving and one of the members asked if I wanted a Mill_ROUTE carving system? So I said let me look at it because I’m not sure what that is. So it turns out it was exactly what I wanted granted its in rough shape and I will need to pick up a router of some sorts for it after I recondition it. This is what I got it has no manual and there is no information I could find on where to get one.

All I’ve ever seen for that is the brochure. It looks
pretty simple.

It looks pretty straight forward. I think you will need a stylus to match the shape of your router bit for copying. I have a 3d duplicator and I make a lot of styli for the different bits I use. I cant tell from the picture if that can be used a a pantograph to change the size of the thing being copied. Can you change the ratio to which it will cut or is it 1:1 ?

I don’t know Jim that’s why I need the information on it. I think so because of the arms at the top where the stylus is. Someone sent me a PM and I answered but they never got back to me.
