Trying out the pantagaph I built during Christmas vacation. Fun Project, works great. Check out for more details on how to build this wonderful machine. Took about 7 hours to make it and a few more hours for the letters.

That guy is really talanted at engineering his shop made contraptions.
I really enjoy surfing by his site to see what he has come up with.
Your new machine is it working well for you?
I have seen quite a few posts about this pantagraph build here on Lumberjocks, its pretty popular.
Thanks for sharing. Please post more pictures and projects using this machine.

Hey! I just got done with my pantograph! Planning on posting it in projects once I actually make a project with it! I haven’t had much chance to test it out yet though – trying to make some stencils for a sign first! Good job by the way!

Very nice. I like the way you cut the letters for templates.
