    Nice work,I wouldn't worry about the dividing head bearings too much,after all an endmill will produce much more pounding at a higher frequency than a peck with a hammer.

    hi, thanks for the feedback, it would have been a good idea to use the tailstock to cut down on the wear and tear,

    bill pace if you visit my website:- www.metalworking.piczo.com go to "workshop tools" you can copy the photos off there where theres some better photos of it.

    Totally COOL!!! I like it!! I would use it in a flash...think about drilling umpty holes around a circle like that in some hard material, me thinks there would be much more force than a little whack with a hammer.

    You need to (please) get 3-4 good pics of that set up, and get them some where they can be ogled and envied (and maybe copied?)--- theres no picture file on this site is it?? How bout at one of the yahoo mill groups?

    Good work...

    Hi

    It's all VERY NICE but you wouldn't catch me using it like THAT.

    If you MUST use it that way then you SHOULD have some support UNDER the item you are stamping.

    Given enough "light" taps it is possible to break/wear/move almost anything

    heres the stamp holder been used,
    it actually works fine, all the numbers were in-line, streight and evenly marked, it only takes a very light blow of a light hammer so i dont think that damage to the bearing or gearing in the dividing head will result.

    I would also worry about damage to dividing head bearings and possibly to the worm and wormwheel.

    When I stamped some handwheels with scales, I made a simple wood Vee holder and rotated by hand. I clamped a couple of pieces of scrap above the center of the Vee to form a quick guide for the stamps. The lines were already scribed so I used them and a mark on the Vee piece for indexing. The wood Vee did show some compression after stamping three wheels.

    Phil, damage would have to be negligble. You don't wail on these number sets. Actually if you hit them too hard they look like hell. It's an acquired feel.

    Have you considered the risk of damage to the dividing head spindle bearing when you whack the punch.

    Nicely done, neat concept. My guess is this should work pretty well for you.

    hi,
    its designed to be mounted on the milling table, using the dividing head to rotate the workpiece then this tool will give an accurate way of stamping the numbers onto the dials. all nice and square and evenly spaced, i only finished it tonight so i will take a photo of it in use tomorrow.

    I assume the bar goes in the spindle,and the arm slides up and down?Cunning ploy,Billyboy .
    What does the cutout near the shaft do?
