"Copy Lathe Mk3"
An 'Auto Combobulator' with a 'Verticator ---
Just thought I would show you this, I know there are people out there that need/ want to build something like this. I's made out of ply (good ply) , so there is no welding anywhere - But I'm just warning you, this one has probably taken up about 6 months of my miserable life-- Every week has a new problem and each problem takes another week to solve, so here I am just trying to show you what is possible.
I made two of these last year, after about three months I scrapped the first one because it wasn't rigid enough and the "geometry" was nowhere near up to scratch, because I drew it up in my head, I then started this one, on paper and spent some $'s. It's all 12 Volt except for the bed drive which I have cranked up to 18V- It measures 700 W x 350 D x 300 H, so you can chuck it in the boot and take it away with you, just a set of jumper leads and a stick of wood and you are away.
It has 'auto feed' so you just push a 1.8m stick in, have a beer/ coffee and about an hour later, there are about 13 x 6cm or 11 x 8cm lure blanks , it also has a cutting tool 'verticator' @@ which keeps the cutter always vertical and over centre, this makes for smoother cut (less sanding). A nagging problem with most of these I have seen is the cutter either moves back and forward (off centre) or side to side, sometimes both, so you get a 'raggy finish'--not saying this is anywhere near perfect though!!!!!!!!! yet.
Still has a few bits that need tweaking .
Pete

Pic's show 6cm cut blanks ( first pic a bit blurry, it's running).

Thanks again for your comments- after spending so much time on this, I'm wondering what to do now---fishing maybe??
Bill not sure which bit you mean, but if it's the round 'honeycomb' thing in front of the 'Mincota O/B', no it's not the 'auto feed', that is a 'heat sink' I found in one of my crashed desk top computers, I stuck it on top of the carriage motor to get rid of some of the built up heat--Never throw anything mechanical away mate .

Jas not really mate, lots of similar machines around the only thing different here is the 'square chuck'. The motors (4) are scavenged from a laminator, a printer, a car door, and a car heater A/C box-- And 5 micro switches mainly scavenged from printers.
I had to buy 6 roller bearings and 4 'linear bearings' with 2 hard steel shafts ( CNC parts ), all other bearings (9) were scavenged from old 12v cordless drills (Ryobi, Makita mainly) which had real gearboxes, unlike the new planetary ones--In these old drills there are a lot of 10mm shafts, bearings, a chuck and gears which came in very handy, the bearings are a very standard size so new replacement ones are very cheap. The 10mm shafts were real handy too (used about 5)- the hardened gears can be combined to get all sorts of speeds (used about 6 of these).
So all in all, discounting TIME it was pretty reasonable $ wise to build.
Oh yeah, also had to buy a recycled 110Ah GSM battery ($40) a Variable D.C supply (0-24 volt) to control the bed speed ($130), a box and switches ($25).
Thanks again for your comments---- now get to it and make one.
Pete

One day I wish I could make something like that!!

Surprised you haven't used any microcontrollers or similar. Will take programming, but might reduce some of the hardware complexity

Pete I've looked through this thread a few times now and I'm still in awe. I also found out recently that you used to work the same job I'm in at the moment and that I had actually met you up at Jindabyne a couple of years ago with mutual work colleagues. I would love to catch up one day for a beer and see some of your creations.

Cheers,

Danny.

Never throw anything out. I made this painting jig from stuff in the scrap heapSmile
It's not by chance it looks like a large rotary fly tying vise as I'm an avid fly tyer too. I don't use it much to do base coats but it's really good when doing details and stencilling

I have been upgrading my dust collector, bought a commercial dust extractor, built a ''Thien Dust Separator'' (very simple o make), then added my water mister on the end to catch the really fine stuff (3-5%).
 Works great and much more compact but a little bit more noisy than the old one, BUT moves about 4 time as much air/dust.

I'm with you Brent, I have a shed full, just in case.

Jas, sanding about 50 x 7cm at the moment, gee I love it  Confused, if only we could sand all day instead of painting and finishing.
Will post some up when they are finishedLOL.
