  • dupli-carver question

    Long time no post..but, I'm still here..
    Anyway, I need to know if anyone has had much experience with the Model T-110 Dupli-Carver ???
    I would like to use one for rough outs and am just wondering how they work and if they perform well for that application.
    Please respond if you might know.. THANKS!! ??? Woodpecker

    Re: dupli-carver question

    Well since no one has replied I will simply say that I have talked to a few people in the past that used the duplicarver for just that and seemed happy with them. I have no idea if they were using the same model you are considering or not.

    so now you have no more information then you did before I posted... :P Good luck.

      I have wanted to get a duplicate carving machine for a long time too. I just don't know how good they are for the price they want for them. If someone does reply I will wait on the edge of my seat for the information.

        Used aT110 Duplicarver for 12 years,sell small Santa figures on wholesale basis,dealers want something looking like the photos sent them. There is a lot of new technology out there ,nine inch santa taking 40 min.with square end router,can be done in 15 min,Some items sold as duplicating machines are slower than doing by hand..Best bit of advice I can give you is to buy a round end router bit and throw the square end router roughing bit as far away as you can,they slam and throw the alignment of the stylus and cutter out of wack,usually ruining the piece.The other thing is that on occasion,I enter carving shows,these carvings are made larger than what will fit in a T110,once you start playing with a copy machine,the backstabbers come out to play and no matter what you do,it's a copy,so be warned.Will be doing some articles on cutters,masters etc,interesting world,

          Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

          Thanks Rolf,
          I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

          Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

          This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
