    Description

    This is a Duplicator like the big router duplicators just small with just a pointy stick for a follower and a cutting tool. When I get some wax and clay I will test it out. This is a work in progress, next step is to minimize the free play while preserving the print-in-place tool arm's non-binding free motion.

    see this link for a crude youtube video to demo the idea anyway:

    Materials and methods

    any such as PLA
    Print two gears and one base.
    Place gears on base

    I used glue stick (not hot melt, the other stuff of course) to put a 25mm test cube on one gear and the tool followed the cube well when i went "with the grain" in a stroking motion. Can't wait to get some wax or clay to test it out for real!
