Vega Midi Duplicator (RareBird)
moocks posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade Forum
Fake fish posted a topic in Lure Building@Steel Pulse I’m looking for some help finding tooling for my Vega. Someone pointed me in your direction.
Offering a Jet JWL1236 in excellent condition. Light use to make some plugs (non-production). Includes delta mobile base and Vega duplicator. Duplicator has custom holder for carbide replaceable cutters. Shown with dust collector attachment I fabricated from someone’s idea on the SOL board awhile ago which unscrews if you don’t want to use. Includes live center, 3 jaw chuck and drive center. Also tool rest which has never been used. Setup has very little use and is in excellent condition. Ready to turn out plugs or spindles. Can also turn outboard for bowl work. This is a sweet setup if you are looking to start a plug building business or hobbyist not wanting to be limited by the smaller lathes. Located in western Suffolk county Long Island. I am not splitting the duplicator from the lathe. Listed as there was a request and I haven’t been turning for a few years. Price for lathe, duplicator and stand is $975 firm. Will also put up a Delta dust collector with modified filter and Oneida dust separator if this sells if there is interest. Otherwise will keep it for lathe if I start turning again. Pic of dust collector included.
Vega Duplicator - Midi vs Pro
jwb22 posted a topic in Lure BuildingI am interested in investing in a vega duplicator. I understand the Midi is no longer in production, but I am looking to get a little feed back / first hand knowledge on the differences between the Midi and pro. Besides track lengths and price, what are the major differences? It does not seem like the cutters are interchangeable - a pro cutter can not be used on the midi and vice versa? I have visited the vega site and looked around - there is not a ton of information out there. If I were to come across a midi, a concern would be having to replace the cutter. If it is no longer produced, I am assuming cutters are in low supply. Are there easy work arounds to this?

Wired Plugs on Duplicator
frazerp posted a topic in Lure BuildingAnyone figured a way to take wired (factory or home-made) plugs & use yr duplicator to make a template. Thought - Pins/stubs & hooked wire to lathe centers, so they don’t rotate (much or at all). Just got my Vega midi set-up on my Grizzly G8690, mostly due to Artistic Sensibilities’ really great, 5 sets of install instructions. Thanks All ...
Midi Duplicator Jumping or sticking
lonellr posted a topic in Lure BuildingI'm having some issues with my duplicator. While I'm turning a lure, the chain will either get stuck for a second and then go or it will just stop while I'm still turning the handle. I've opened it up, cleaned it and lubed it. I can't think of anything else to do with it. Any suggestions?
