Freehand Turning

Click to see larger view
Figure 13-29. You can do freehand turning with the lathe duplicator.

Freehand turning is very much like duplicating except no template or pattern is required. You can shape the piece any way you imagine it (Figure 13-29). The setup is the same except that the template brackets, the follower and the follower upright support are removed. Leave the channel assembly and guard in place.
