Ref: 3665
New Myford dividing head attachment for small mill or Myford lathe with manual
Complex dividing head, comes with 3 plates
"In this design, consideration has been given not only to the wide range of possible uses of the Versatile Dividing Head but also to the simplification of construction. In this context it may be mentioned that this dividing head generates its own division plates to a very high order of accuracy.

Simple Dividing is by means of a spring loaded plunger engaging any of the 24 holes in the face of the main wheel. Squares, hexagons, keyway cutting and tap fluting will probably be done by this method.

Conventional Dividing is by means of the usual worm and division plate, which now replaces the spring loaded plunger. Both this and the plunger are mounted on a banjo which can be swung around the main casting to the most convenient operating position. The two division plates will allow most divisions used, including angular spacing, to be obtained.

Prime numbers or indeed any possible division outside the range of the two plates are indexed by means of the "Micro-Attachment" giving capabilities down to 1/100th of a degree! Thus a second worm and wheel are attached under the division plate, allowing calculated manual rotation of the division plate, by means of the calibrated knob at the end of the worm shaft. This rotation or correction is done at each step of the dividing."

This unit is a 24 hole indexing unit,with a 2-1/16" center hight,nose is threaded
