**********************************************
Just lately there has been a number of enquiries on the Ng about division
tables for Rotary tables / dividing heads with other than the standard
40 : 1 ratio.
The standard series of 3 dividing plates are as follows:-
These three plate are suitable for any ratio as all the division breaks down
into prime numbers or numbers that are divisible by the holes on the plate.
NOTE 1:-
For the readers who are going to make their own plates I would miss out the
first hole [ 15 ] and move the 21 to the first plate to make room on the
second for a 28 hole circle. This is because any numbers need to be divisible
by 15 can be handled by 20,21 or 27 and a 28 is handy for 28 and 56 divisions
which is not obtainable with some of the non standard rotary tables [ see chart ].
This file will be under division.txt and an Excel spreadsheet called division.xls
will be with it. The table covers 40, 60, 80 and 90:1 ratios.
The first number is complete turns and the fraction is the number of holes on
that circle. So 3 21/33 is 3 complete turns and then 21 holes on a 33 hole circle.

The standard hole plates you list are, I believe, the ones normally supplied
with 40:1 dividing heads. They will not provide all the divisions up to fifty
(the nominal standard) with a 90:1 DH, e.g.,
90/28 = 3 & 3/14 = 3 & 6/28
and the 40:1 set you listed doesn't provide a 14 or 28 hole plate.
If the OP is going to make his own plates, the 'minimum hole drilling' set for
all divisions up to fifty and a 90:1 ratio is:
3,5,13,14,16,17,
19,22,23,29,31,37,
41,43,47,49,
For a 40:1 ratio, the 'minimum hole drilling' set is:
While the set of typical 40:1 plates you list may be the easiest to obtain in
the marketplace, my point is that the right set to self-make is a function of
the DH gear ratio.

Bob didn't say he was going to make any plates, only that he had lost his chart.
Whist i accept what you say about choice of numbers I posted that list for the standard Brown and Sharp set because it is the standard.

If you have different hole plates, you can either download the program and use
it to generate the appropriate table or supply me with the hole plate data and
I'll run the case for you.
