Homebuilt Router Copier Lathe




What do you think about this video?

J Alan: Would not a round router bit with an equal round pin cap be better for this?

Jai Guru: Oh this is just brilliant. I am genuinely jealous, I cannot afford a lathe and I want one in the worst way. Very well done!

42guitars: for better results on carving use a round bit and matching stylist you wont get all those sharp edges when turnning

GILLEBRATH: Great idea. that copier jig and nice vase . I have a lathe and never use it . Thanks for the inspiration to get at it again. Thanks for sharing this.

Bouseba Adam: I cant understand some dumbs who dislike the video

Biryuk__37rus WOT: You Americans are morons!

Nikola Boskovic: +ThisWoodwork +ThisWoodworkVlog Can I ask you which model and caracterstics of motors on the lathe ? :) Thanks in advance

Bikefarm Taiwan: Good job mate! Keep it up, it is good of you to share your progress.

BlueMacGyver: You could try a Miter Lathe Combo like the one on my channel for improved speed I find when turning wood it is just too time consuming.

TheFloridaPappy: Clever.

Zied BA: very interesting

Gene Grissom: Alex, I am 66 yrs old and love to work with wood sometimes but I am no where near as good as you and never will be as I don't have the tools to work with. Anyway, I wanted to make a suggestion on your router lathe. From what I see, the bolt you use as a guide on your template needs to be ground to a point. I say this because I noticed that you were jerking around with the end of the bolt as it were. So you might try to grind it down and see how that works.. You might even consider attaching a glass cutter with the small roller to your guide. let me know what you think if you can I'm Gene Grissom at texasfishermangg@gmail.com Thanks for some great videos Keep up the good / great work

Marian B: beautiful vaze :) nice job! :)

James Nicoll: 4.46 u nearly snapped your arm those sleeve on your shirt were too close to the moving material

eloy leonardo: Muy bueno

OneManHowTo: Smart...very smart

wambutda rotji: you people are amazing.please I need an update every time.

don callender: good job nice work

Jose Manuel Cordova Solis: 

Michael unknown: cool ! Thank you so much for inspiration !

Mohamed Mesla: how can i get some thing like this please 

magvegas: you look stoned all the time :p

truthdefender54: I would use a smaller bit with a rounded end. That should give a smoother finish as it mimics the profile of standard turning tool. Just a thought.

John Schneider: Brilliant

joandar1: Nice Gadget, shows inventiveness. I would like to make one comment for the benifit of any that are not aware. That is that to obtain an acurate copy of your sample profile it is very important that the stylus (you look to have used a bolt) is the same profile as the cutter used. If it is different from the cutter size then dimensional changes will be evident in the finished product. Cheers from John.

Nicolaas Leach: Nice!

SmrdimJakRum: Awesome work! I´m impressed that you´re using a milling machine to cut the shape on the lathe. Is it dangerous? I always using only wood chisels because I´m afraid that even slowest speed of the lathe will kick it out and broke my milling machine.. Do you have some trick? (Sorry for my bad english, I hope you know what I mean:-)) Cheers from Czech Republic

guitarslf132: 3:52 Dude never use cloth near machinery!! D: Unlike paper it won't tear if it catches!

icouldntmakeupaname2: You sound like you are bored

Rodrigues Sagás: His work shows great accuracy and fine finish. Working with wood is even a divine gift to the few who can do it with dexterity and wit. Congratulations on the very beautiful work. Here where I live, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil, working with wood but in building miniature radio controlled wood and have too much trouble finding people who can circumvent delicate pieces for my thumbnails. Hugs from Brazil.

ThisWoodwork: No I am still building it I am afraid, on top of trying to get out other projects I don't spend much time on it sadly. Really sorry, Alex.

RuMpLe StilTsKiN: Excellent stuff! I was waiting for that rasp to go flying @ 03:48 :(

macmen007: You are a woodworking FOOL! NICE!

Sam Smith: I was thinking the same thing jim, except flat face pin & tool to rough.....The radius of the pin needs to be as small, or smaller, than the smallest radius on the template....... Good job Alex!

VardMel: Excellent show.

Woody Wood: BRILLIANT! Good skills dude!

TableWolfMusic: I read your comment in Alex's voice. (I think Alex is cool)

David Moscoe: I feel like I'm missing something. I think this is really nice work, but you have the lathe on, why even mount the router? couldn't a fingernail gouge or scraper be as effective as the router, and leave a nicer finish?

David Moscoe: I wouldn't do that, especially with a japanese saw, it's super easy to screw up the blade

sửachữa muabán: good

Shaun Long: The guide bolt you have should be rounded off to a ball and it will glide alot better on the template

applejak2000: Hamid please cram your spam up your butt

Leslie Cherrington: That is one boring guy

stubryanfull: it is like a wood working version of a key cutter/copier

ThisWoodwork: Thanks! That and many other changes were made to the updated version, links were posted durning the video. Alex

Aniruddh Datar: Also using spring loaded follower will prevent itches on template.

MaterialSam: good idea, but i notice that there is one improvement that could be made. this will not accurately copy the profile unless you put a dull point on the end of the bolt you use to contact the profile, that way it copies the curve without making the curve wider in the slide direction.

LiNERROR: use a bit with a smooth radius instead of sharp edges. slow down your lathe and run your router at max.

Sanjayrao Babu: Good Idea Kiddo, Suggest that you use a small bearing for the stylus (where you have used a screw) for pattern following. That way your router will follow the template in a smooth manner. Do reply

Kroban3: Good stuff. My only suggestion is to delete the political comments. There's a time a place for politics. The comments section of a woodworking video is not the place for politics, in my opinion.
