With this device and a router, you can accurately transfer letters, designs or line drawings from paper to wood. Simply follow the outline of the original with the integral stylus; the pantograph arms transmit this movement to a router base, guiding the bit to reproduce a scaled image reduced by 50%.
Useful for making signs or adding decorative details and lettering to furniture or toys, it comes with letter and numeral sets for two fonts (Old English and Modern) but you can use the outline of any printed image. The stylus has a maximum travel of 32" × 16" through × and y axes.
The router (plunge model recommended) mounts to a 7" diameter baseplate that is pre-drilled for most popular makes* and quickly detaches from the pantograph for easier bit changes or using the router free hand.
Sturdily constructed from tubular steel and ABS plastic, it includes 1/4" and 3/8" core box bits, a 1/4" 45° V-groove bit (all with 1/4" shanks), a brass-tipped 5/8" O.D. ABS guide bushing, a centering pin and complete instructions.
