  • Fits most midi/mini lathes

By far one of the standards of duplicators on the market is the Vega 8500 midi lathe duplicator. It is ideal for the do-it-yourselfer looking to create uniquely crafted pieces, such as pens & pencils (excellent gift item), candle sticks, fishing lures, chess pieces, and so much more. In fact, the 8500 is amazingly easy to use, operating on the same principle as an ordinary key cutter, and cuts up to 1/2" per pass as well as copies parts up to 10" long. It is manufactured in the U.S.A, so you know there is the guarantee of quality. When you're in the market for a midi lathe duplicator, trust the success of the Vega 8500.

The 8500 includes:

  • 1x Vega Model 8500 Midi Lathe Duplicator
  • 1x Exclusive Cutter
  • 1x Master Turning Holders
  • 1x Operator's Manual
  • 1x Mounting Hardware

For all but the most experienced hand turners, the Vega Midi duplicator will give you much faster stock removal, good surface finish on most woods and the ability to produce multiple parts that are exactly the same. The duplicator works on the same principle as a key cutter. You either make a template (which has the profile of the turning cut into it) or mount an original turning that you wish to copy (2" diameter maximum for original turnings.) Excess material is quickly removed by locking the cutters in-out motion and turning the hand wheel of the duplicator to move the cutter along the axis of the lathe bed.

You can easily turn: pens & pencils, chess pieces, fishing lures, candle sticks, mini baseball bats, Christmas ornaments, duck calls, doll house parts, & many others.

The Vega 8500 Midi Lathe Duplicator Carves like butter!
By Dean from Santee, California on June 9, 2015
I have been turing acrylic and wood for a while now and have always had difficulty taking decent chunks of material off without gouging. This duplicator can seriously reduce your turning times and blow outs. Love it!!!
It takes all the hard work and makes it stress free when you have a customer waiting. Gone are the days that your blank blows up on you.

Can reduce turning times
Can increase production
Can duplicate design measurements for multiple orders
The only dislike is that I wish it was large enough to duplicate a cane. But for the price I cannot complain.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
