Design Features of the

With the Easy Carver duplicator, almost any 1/2 plunge router can be used. When you're not using the duplicator you can quickly remove the router and use it as normal.

Note: Plunge router must have provision for a fence guide attachment, as shown in the picture opposite, and have a base no wider than 17.5cm.

2. Standard Router Cutters

The Easy Carver copy carver has been designed to use standard 1/2 x 63mm router cutters, the same cutters that are used for cutting kitchen work tops. These are readily available and inexpensive to buy.

Using these cutters combined with the power of a 1/2 plunge router allows the Easy Carver duplicator to quickly and easily cut through the wooden blank.

A good quality collet extension, like this trend extension can be used when carving with shorter shank cutters.

3. Standard Counterbalance Weights

The Easy Carver duplicator utilises standard off-the-shelf counterbalance weights. The same weights that are used for weight training.

These are readily available from sports shops, supermarkets, etc. Just add the weights to match the weight of your router.
