  • Templet for Tracer Lathe Question

    Does the stylist diameter have to be taken into consideration when making a templet for a tracer lathe?

    Yes, the shape of the stylus contact area with the pattern should match the tool nose.

    On my tracer the stylus is round with a vee shape milled on it for contact. __V__ Bad graphic there, but point of the vee shape rides on the pattern. Radius the vee's tip as needed to match cutter.
