Comments:
Model 46-840 Wood Turning Duplicators are indicated as accessories for 11 and 12 inch wood lathes. I am showing two types one manufactured in 1964 and labeled under Rockwell Manufacturing and the the other manufactured in 1983 by Rockwell International. Both are listed as Model 46-840. However there are subtle differences between the two. The earlier one has a C section toothed guide rail bar while in the later version this has been changed to a round bar with notches. The tool bar support rail in the earlier version is a plain C section with a wheel on an eccentric pivot point running in it. In the newer version the support bar is a plain alloy flat bar with a square head set screw with a lock nut running on it. The earlier Saturn knobs appear to have been red the later ones black.
