SYNCHRONOUS Hydraulic copy attachment for a lathe?

I have a lathe in my shop, right now, that has a hydraulic copy
attachment.
What is interesting is that the "source" part that is being copied, is
NOT just held statically. It actually rotates, with a shaft driving it
synchronously with the lathe chuck.

Therefore, I suspect, this lathe can be used to copy non-concentric
objects, like camshafts.
Any comments?

"He also developed a copying lathe that traced a model to turn gun stocks, producing the desired contour automatically (1818)."

When I saw it the floor was littered with shavings from a recent run. jsw

I remember watching one of those set up in a science centre many years ago. It was making a metal copy of a "coke" bottle complete with raised lettering.

The methodology of the left has always been:
1. Lie 2. Repeat the lie as many times as possible 3. Have as many people repeat the lie as often as possible 4. Eventually, the uninformed believe the lie 5. The lie will then be made into some form oflaw 6. Then everyone must conform to the lie

Yep, late 1700s this kind of thing in France revolutionized furniture making (baroque and rococo legs for furniture were suddenly not prohibitively expensive to hand-produce). I think there were also faceplate-type turning dupllicators, that made easy production of bas-relief medallions/plaques/frames.
