Router copy carver plans for sale

This four-axis copy carver is designed to maximize rigidity while keeping construction and material requirements simple. A 3/4" pipe, a steel shaft, 11 rollerskate ball bearings, and some screws, nuts, and bolts are all that is needed (aside from the palm-sized router)

The plans include:

  • Detailed drawings of every part of the copy carver
  • Dimensioned 3D views and assembly drawings
  • Full-scale 1:1 drawings of key parts, so you just paste them onto plywood and cut them out with a bandsaw.
  • Detailed instructions on how to build it, with over 60 photos
  • Materials and hardware list
  • A SketchUp model of the copy carver, which allows you to view it from any angle, disassemble it, or regenerate each of the views in the plans by clicking on the 'scene' tabs in SketchUp. SketchUp is a free, easy to use CAD program, downloadable from Google.
