  • 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,

          I would not use regular plywood but Baltic Birch is different. On Steve Garrisons Facebook page someone posted a shell with either Baltic Birch or something like Spectraply. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of tearing or splintering with either cutting or sanding.

          Using solid...

          Bruce took the “zipper”ff today. Yep, the stitches were zipper type. When we were packing up at the market Sunday, the coffee vendor asked if we wanted a taste of his chocolate whiskey coffee. We said no thanks. After driving to Annapolis in the truck today to get Elliott, Bruce said he was going...

          I usually don’t use plywood, but I think it works beautifully with these patterns. On my to do list in January.

          I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

          And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...
