How to build Lathe Duplicator Rig
by Ken Grunke – Inspired by Don Derrys adaption of Marco Beraras design, which Don posted in the WoW File Cabinet on Jan. 28, 2007. After seeing that lathe duplicator rig, my version was hastily cobbled together using spare parts from my scrap bins. Easily put together using salvaged/found parts, or purchased off the shelf.

Free Woodworking Plans to Build a Lathe with Ballast Box and Trestle Legs.
About a month ago, I picked up a Jet 1642 EVS 1 1/2 HP lathe. Since I am primarily a bowl turner, I wanted to raise the lathe up to a more comfortable height. And while the Jet 1642 does weigh 435 lbs by itself, (IMHO) a ballast box for adding some weight would only improve its performance. Information is copyright of its respective owners.
