The standard carving length is 800mm, this can be customised to suit your particular requirements.
The comprehensive build manual has over 130 pages of clear, illustrated, and easy to follow step-by-step instructions to make the process of building the Easy Carver as straightforward as possible.

About the Easy Carver
The Easy Carver was designed by Clone Duplicators (who also invented the Clone 3D & Clone 4D duplicators). Clone has many years experience in designing and building copy carvers, and using this knowledge, Clone decided to design a quality duplicator that could be built with ‘off-the-shelf’ parts by the self builder for a fraction of the cost of a fully built commercially available machine.
High Quality – Low Build Cost
The Easy Carver has been designed for people who don’t have the budget for a commercial grade duplicator, or who just prefer the DIY approach. The low build cost doesn’t mean that it’s a low grade duplicator – excellent results can be achieved with the Easy Carver, it’s a tried and tested design. Since 2010 woodworkers all over the world have been using the Easy Carver!

The Easy Carver
Copy Carving Made Easy
Three Unique Money Saving
Design Features of the
Easy Carver Router Duplicator
1: Standard Plunge Routers
With the Easy Carver duplicator, almost any 1/2” plunge router can be used. When you’re not using the duplicator you can quickly remove the router and use it as normal.
2: Standard Router Cutters
The Easy Carver copy carver has been designed to use standard 1/2” x 63mm router cutters, the same cutters that are used for cutting kitchen worktops. These are readily available and inexpensive to buy.
Using these cutters combined with the power of a 1/2” plunge router allows the Easy Carver duplicator to quickly and easily cut through the wooden blank.
3: Standard Counterbalance Weights
The Easy Carver duplicator utilises standard off-the-shelf weight training plates (with a 25mm – 1″ centre hole) to counterbalance the weight of the router.
These are readily available from sports shops, supermarkets etc. Just add the weights to match the weight of your router.
