  • Regent Duplicator table...How is it used?

    We have at work in the corner, a Regent Duplicator Table made by the James l howard Co.

    This thing attatches to something as it only has one leg onto which there is a 3 foot joystick for controlling the table movement. This whole rig only has that one leg, so it bolts onto something. Internet search on Regent Duplicator only has one hit and it was another same set-up for sale. Other internet info says that James L howard is a railroad hardware supplier (think crossing gates and such ) any one ever use one of these things? or even know what it does?

    Thanks, Mike

    Need a picture!!

    Without the picture I'm going to guess it bolts to a mill table. Would also need a stylis secured to the head. Mount the duplicator on the table. Secure a "pattern" under the stylis and a workpiece under the quill. The joy stick moves the "pattern" under the styliss and the workpiece move under the quill.

    Without the picture I may have just wasted a bunch of electrons.

          That is a 2d duplicator for a Gorton milling machine.
          A very rare accessory indeed.
          Here is a page link.

          If it's for sale, I'm interested.

            I liked the title on one of the promo pages, “8 Ways You Can Cut Time and Costs in Half – Without Skilled Diemakers.”

            Pitching a way to get rid of those moody, overpaid toolmakers has obviously been working for many years.
