WeekendMiniaturist Posted August 5, 2018 Share Posted August 5, 2018 I was lucky to source taig lathe #2 locally and it has an automatic power feed attachment, and what I think is a bypass switch that allows the lathe to go back to manual use. I was thinking that it would be wonderful to set up a lathe permanently for duplicating. I would appreciate opinions on the usefulness of the automatic power feed attachment in the realm of 1/12th scale miniatures. Would you want this accessory? and how you would you use it? I have to remount the lathe, because it has drawers underneath the lathe and is too tall for my use, and if I set it up with a duplicator it will require a different setup for the mounting board, too. In my very limited experience I have have always cut my threads by hand, and I don't want to disassemble if there is truly a use for this.
