Captain Al Posted April 2, 2014 Share #1 Posted April 2, 2014 Has anyone ever used (what is known here in the states as) a contour duplicator to reproduce the shape of a hull or part thereof? I awoke this morning to remember I have one of these tools (which I'll take a picture of later and post) and thought it might work really well to transfer the curvature of the hull to a flat board where dowels could be inserted, making a nice drying jig for planks. If there's been any experience with this device (which is as simple as hundreds of sliding pins that are pushed or pulled out so they just touch the surface of what they're duplicating) I'd love to hear about it before I spend the time to make it all work (or not which might happen).
