I bought this to do multiple turnings for a railing that I was building. Even in hard maple the duplicator worked great and the turnings look just like the ones on the existing part of the railing. The duplicator also cut my time from 1.5 hrs per turning to 1/2 hr including sanding and the results are much more uniform than I can do with calipers and a parting tool. Thanks

I was initially frustrated with the duplicator on first use because it cut pretty well on the outside of a bowl but it did not cut well at all on the inside bottom no matter what cutter I selected. The cutters in my opinion did not have enough bevel. So I mounted my cutters from Easy Wood Tool chisels on the duplicator .... and it worked beautifully just like the videos advertise. I made 6 identical bowls in rapid fashion. I really like the duplicator but with Easy Wood Tool cutters not the Shopsmith cutters. (note-you'll need to adjust the followers to match the easy wood tool cutters, and use a different washer to mount the cutters). Now that I've figured this out, I am very happy with the duplicator.
