Headstock Dividing - Ideal for Clockmakers
Attachment for Headstock Dividing (Series 7 Lathes)
This is the attachment for dividing on the Myford Series 7 lathes, using the headstock rather than the vertical slide. This attachment is suitable for all Series 7 lathes with the quick change gearbox, although it can be adapted to suit non-gearbox machines easily.
You will not need to perform any machining on your dividing attachment, and no alterations to your lathe are necessary, all you will need to do is remove some parts from your attachment and add the parts that come in this set.
This has a very rigid contruction with no backlash. It will allow you to divide by turning the spindle, rather than the work. This attachment is very useful for general gear cutting and division, and can be of use in horology.
