The Lienhard Found a Friend

A recent and most delightful visitor to the workshop found himself right at home on the Lienhard pantograph machine, although given his ability to mimic speech, I’m not surprised ! Quite the aristocrat.-1



I realized that the size comparison of this lovely bird and the Lienhard gives one a better idea of scale. The Lienhard is a super compact heavy duty and versatile engraving machine.




It comes with an extensive set of engraving plates, cutter spindle, reducing sleeves, clamps for the work table, clamps and fastening blocks for the copy table, straight shank cutter, and documentation. It’s in excellent working condition.

  1. Hi Astol,

    The machine is really something – Lienhard made 4 versions of this machine. This one (number 2) seems the most versatile for its size. Of course, I’m not surprised Dennis owned this particular one. I hope you’ll be able to attend the sale! It’s be great to meet you.

  2. Hi Brittany, I didn’t know a machine so small had so many functions and so versatile,i am really interested. , sorry not to forget the bird, what beautiful feathers. Regards Astol
