The Slender Turning Attachment is used with the Vega Duplicator to make small spindles in one pass without chattering and vibration. It uses a traveling steady rest with a precutter. The precutter rounds the work to fit into the steady rest, then the duplicator cutter follows making the desired profile. The Slender turning attachment comes in two sizes. The first will turn spindles up to 1-3/8" in diameter. The second will turn spindles up to 1-7/8" and is equipped with a retractable fixed cutter to facilitate leaving a square section (pummel) in the middle of the turning.
