Exact Repro of Martin Bridge a la Gemini Carving Duplicator

I recently purchased a Gemini carving duplicator for the shop. This is an amazing machine for making exact copies of bodies, necks and other parts. I put it to the test on the other day to see how well it would handle the fine contours and details of a Martin bridge. I was blown away at how quickly, effortlessly and cleanly I was able to make an exact copy! The photos below show the process and the rough sanded result before slotting and pin-hole boring on the milling machine. If you’re looking for a carving duplicator, this is it!
