The pantograph traces a pattern’s edge with a stylus which transfers its movement to a piece of endwood to create an exact copy of the pattern.  The copy arm contains a small air powered router with a cutting bit turning at 50,000 revolutions per minute.

The operator has access  to countless patterns or templates which have been cut on scroll saws and stored in drawers.  The pantograph adjusts to cut type blocks of various sizes from the pattern.
