About This File

I credit the Lord Jesus Christ for all things I do because I know I could do nothing without Him. In fact, it is my personal belief that all of my insights and ideas originate from Him.

This hand tool / machine duplicates prints and other simple objects in wax, clay, and other soft materials. You attach a print with glue stick or double sided tape or other adherent to one gear / platform and the working material to the other. then you operate the tool arm, cutting away as needed while turning the gear and following with the tool arm.

I named this thing after the Florida Gators, the University of Florida mascot because it's my sister's alma mater.

I have developed a fascination with hand-operated machines since becoming a 3D printing enthusiast two and a half years ago, and now I am finally making my first machine. This design has too much play, so next thing to do is reduce the play in the tool arm, mostly by widening the hinge i believe.
