A couple years ago I was given a Woodchuck Milti-Axis Milling System Model MA12 and I'd like to try to use it. After turning a spindle on the lathe, it is mounted on the axis of this equipment, with a router and bit on a tray above. Manually turn a handle and different gear combinations move the router along the spindle as it is rotated, to create rope twist, barley twist, and maybe other effects.
An Internet search has not found anything so perhaps the manufacturer Pahtiom Engineering in Provo Utah has ceased operation.
Does anyone have any experience with this equipment?
Without appropriate router bits I can't even experiment.
