Question Home made 3d pantograph

HI! I would like some feed back on this machine. These took a couple of days and lots of trial and error but here it is. great for lots of work up to 5/8 thick, it has a lot of potential smooth x,y,z motion. It is begin to be put to good use.

Its a wonder What some old drawer rails and some hard thinking(for lack of a better word) will do. Here I can get the most of my Dremel cutter.

If you have any questions please re-ply.

Hi Carlosflam
Is that like a duplicator? Or a freehand CNC?

Cool Re: Home made 3d pantograph

HI! I'm working on fine tuning the copies,but it will copy and allow for 3d carving(manually) as well about 5/8 Inch. for now but it can go higher.
so it is both...

Duplicator and a manual CNC
