Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steele1071 Nice product
I really like this product. When I first orders it I was worried that it would be complicated to put together or operate, I was wrong. Even if it doesn't compare to the automated version it's great if your on a budget.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RIBaseball Easy to use, excellent value!
I purchased the pantograph to carve letters in to oak plaques as part of my son's Eagle Scout project. He was building bat/helmet racks for our town's Little League dugouts and the plaques were engraved with the town initials. It worked very well.
Setup was easy, follow the instructions, and practice! Once you are comfortable with the tool, begin carving.
Letter templates are great. You can also increase the size by printing letters on 8.5x11 paper to get 6" sized letters. A very good value for the money.

Easy set up.. Holds tightly to my plunge router attachment for Dremel 4000. I have created 2 projects with it. Glides smooth on beach plywood. Comes with several different lettering.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tylerite Fun tool. Take the time to learn.
I purchased this item mainly for lettering purposes but quickly realized that it can be used for anything. Simply draw a project in a CAD program, scale it accordingly, set up your pantograph and go to town. I have a pretty old variable depth router and it fits in the base no problem.
There is a nice learning curve to the setup so I recommend taking your time to work through the instructions and watch some youtube videos.
All in all excellent purchase and would recommend to any DIYer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pike Works ok but poor plastic
Works fine as a pantograph but the plastic locating pins to set reduction are poor as is the router base. The plastic is poor quality or could have been molded poorly. Locating pin was tight in hole and broke when I tried VERY CAREFULLY to pull it out. The slots in the plastic base broke when I tightened the router clamps with only my fingers. There are small thumb screws to insure against overtighening and all I used were my fingers and I ain't no gorilla.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BW11 Excellent product and value for the price.
With care this product is capable of amazing work. The nervous and careless may be disappointed.
Multiple improvements could be made with corresponding increase in cost.
This tool will last a long time with proper care and was cheap enough I could afford it.
