  • Cincinati Dividing Head

    Just bought this dividing head in ebay and I woukd like a manual for it. It is a 14" and the numbers on the base are cud 5p 263. Am I correct to assume that the cud stands for Cincinati Universal Dividinghead and model is a 5p and the sn is 263? Does anyone know a good source for manuals? I found one on the web but $200 is a bit steep considering I paid $250 for the head!!

    I do not know where you can get a manual for it but there are several sources of information on using them. The Henry Ford Trade School book titled "Shop Theory" gives good instructions and the Audels "Machinists and Tool Makers Handy Book" by Frank D. Graham does a good job of explaining it. All deviding heads are similar in use. There is also a cheap pamplet from Lindsay's publications I believe that is on deviding heads. Joe

      Thanks happy02 for the insight but the info i am looking for is more on maintenance of the unit. i am familar with the operation of the dividing head but this one has a feature that disengages the worm gear and a nifty brake that may need adjusting now and then. Just thought that a manual for beast would be in order.

          I assume the dividing head was made by
          Cincinnati Milling Machine Co.

          Company changed name many times and was sold
          and re opened in Hebron KY. (near Airport)
          I retired from them when still located in
          Cincy Ohio.
          New Telephone # 859-534-4600
          Parts and or service dept. may be able to help.

                New company has a website but I couldn't find anything on old stuff.

                I say a tel call may be best bet.
