Cloning OSX formatted drive

I would like to do a test recovery on a copy of damage drive before actual repair of original damaged drive.
Is it possible to clone a damaged drive from within Testdisk?
If yes, what is the step-by-step instructions.

I'm not as much an Apple expert.

No, you can create an image for recovering purposes and work with TestDisk and PotoRec to recover data.

TestDisk doesn't restore any image.
Also some hints to work with damaged hard disks here;
