DIVIDING HEAD


When building the Quorn - Tool and Cutter Grinder it was necessary to divide circles and score many protractors for the project. This is a very simple dividing head with the same register & internal taper of the Myford lathe mandrel. The centre height is the same as the lathe as well making set-ups real easy. The job could be turned on the lathe and then transferred to the dividing head without disturbing the register.
By simply changing the gear one could divide for most requirements.
