Manual Copy Turning

An immobile pink sample is fixed on the modified center of the tailstock.
When turning, the operator uses screws of the compound slide and the cross slide to let the blue screw-tracer follow the sample.
The red tool creates a surface of the orange work corresponding to the sample profile. Cutting depth is adjusted by the blue screw-tracer.
The sample position in relation with the workpiece can be adjusted by using the tailstock.
