Advice on dividing heads
Guys, perennial newbie here with another question. I'm going to be doing some work that looks like I'll be drilling or machining various parts of round stock. My layout skills are apparently lacking and I'm wondering if I shouldn't invest in a dividing head so that I can be much more precise in my placement on round stock. The smart money is on sharpening my pencil and getting better at layout, I got that. But it's a tool! And it's cool! I've never used one before. Is this a cool piece of kit to have but not necessary or is this something that you can't believe I don't already have?
If it's something I should have, any thoughts to ordering one of the Enco import models? I'm figuring this is something I'll use on my mill mostly and my work probably won't be overly large.
