  • Dividing tool

    Hi All

    Been a long time, but finally I have finished a new project.

    It is a dividing apparatus, that is the first step in my project of building a clock





    Any commend is as allways welcome

    Looks good, did you drill the holes by hand or CNC?

      CNC - That's cheating isn't ?

      The plate is drilled by hand in a rather special setup

        Real good looking plate you have there. Nice job, I really like the way you drilled the holes. Can't wait to see step 2
        If you are using violence and it does not work, You are not using enough or it is upside down.
        You can always just EDM it...

          I like how you sawed that split-block clamp - did you do that by hand ? Fine looking piece of work.

            The spilt block was made in the lathe by use of my milling attachment




            The spilt arm was made with a junior hack saw

              I like the compound set up you have used there. Fine looking unit overall.

                How did you make the longitudinal cut, parallel to the length of the arm? ...thread a hacksaw blade through the hole to start the cut?

                  By hack saw? Is it possible at all?

                  I got it! You read the recently published tip on how to use hacksaws (gold nuggets like "saw blade should be sharp" and "lubrication is helpful").

                  P.S. Very good craftsmanship! Thank you for sharing. Look forward to seeing Part 2 of the series.

                      Nice job. Would you describe how you used the gear train to index for drilling the holes?
                      I like the cross slide stop on your lathe too.

                        How did you produce that L slit?

                          To make the L-slit I first thread a hacksaw blade in the hole and cut, next a cut from outside into the privious cut.

                          As for the gear train setup, I kindly ask you to study the photo, I'm sure this tells much more than my words will tell.

                          The tool is not blakened, but the stock piece of steel was painted black in its former life.

                          Thank you for all the kind comments

                              With the 7 rows I can make the following divisions
