    Default Pantograph for inlay work

    Just now saw this sub topic and thought I would chime in with the pantograph I just built -

    A few weeks ago I finished the pantograph I designed for doing inlay work on guitars. This was initially for use with my Dremel and flex cable. I did one simple test with it and that worked fine but I’ll do some more before I cut into some nice exotic wood or Abalone. Since I built and posted the video I have modified the pantograph to mount my Dremel directly because I discovered the flex cable chuck runout was too great to do accurate work. Also, I have added a micro-adjustment to the stylus since the video.

    It’s very smooth and precise so I’m pleased with that part of it. It will do 2:1, 3:1, and 4:1 reductions.

    My target testing piece is in the upper right hand corner of the video -

    Very nice construction! Looks great!

    I used to do a lot of ad-hoc small signs years back and used an old Vermont American pantograph, but yours looks vastly superior.

    cheers, Ian
