    He is in his 80's and tours around in a RV so he may be difficult to find.

    If anyone has any more information on this kind of machine, especially any homebrew/shop-built versions, I would be very interested to know more about it.

    I actually have a need- and very soon- to make many duplicates of a short stock section, such as the back end of a lever action rifle. My current plan is to set up a small CNC router, but I've been toying with the idea of a machine like this (I saw pics of that antique pattern lathe many years ago) to rough out the blanks.

    That way the CNC could be used to just give the "finish pass", so to speak, and save machine time.

    Doc.

    If you have a good duplicator, properly set up, and the correct tooling, you do not need a finishing step with a CNC router.





    Below, fresh off the duplicator, no sanding or finish. Pacific Big Leaf maple, the blank was air cured 24 years. The plywood screwed to the butt is to prevent chipping of the maple when carving. It will be discarded.






    Ummm lever guns:

    What do you have for machine tools? Welding capabilities? I built one a couple years ago and still tweaking it. I hate wood, and that may be an understatement but I despise synthetic stocks even more - especially in the style of firearms I favor. The duplicator sames me a considerable amount of time when starting with a blank. Here's a few pictures of mine - they are a lot of work to make one, the cheaper ones that you can purchase - dupe.jpgdupe-1.jpgdupe-2.jpgdupe-5.jpg are just that...
