    Default Mason Duck Decoy Lathe turning

    I was woundering if anyone has photos of how they lathe turned the old Mason wood duck decoys. Or photos of how they use to lathe turn rifle stocks. Anyone got photos of lacking that 1000 words? Gary P. Hansen

    You can see one at Springfield (MA) Armory or the American Precision Museum in Windsor, VT.

    I think there was a link to a Dutch wooden shoe factory/museum here on PM last year, that might have had a video of their lathe working. Use the search function.

    Default Duplicating Lathe

    There is a gentleman in Northwest Ohio that attends several local engine shows with an operating duplicating lathe. He usually is making walking sticks with it.

    Orange City Iowa is where the tracer lathe for making wooden shoes lives. It is set up to make shoes for tourists- formerly it was one of many such wooden-framed Blanchard type tracers in the big wooden shoe factory there.
    The Chamber of commerce is very nice and I am sure they'd connect you with someone who could tell you all about it.
