I have seen some of the homemade duplicators and I am very interested in getting one. Someone please help me out. I am sick of trying to make the same plugs by eye.

I don't think this is allowed in here,,,,??? Should look for someone to trade you some plugs or something for one in the BST,,,

WTB is for sure not allowed, so you are gonna have to post this in BST threads or something.

build it yourself, that's half the fun. If you can build a plug you can build the dup.

don't you ever wash that thing?

mine is just a ground drill bit. I tried it thinking maybe I had a 50/50 shot at getting it to cut well. first try at it and it works fine.

You can find cutting tips to use for your homemade duplicator by searching the web. The best one I found so far was the one from the vega, but it was about $100.00. They have other ones that look like chisels heads that are alot cheaper around $20-30 dollars but they wont stay sharp as long.
