  • Weird dividing head...

    I found a dividing head that is kind of strange. The dividing plate and handle are 90 deg. from the chuck but it is canted up at about a 45 deg angle. It also has a 45 deg. gear directly under the plate. If it were bolted to the table of a mill with the chuck pointed to the right (Operator directly in front of the mill) the plate/handle would be in front of the operator and angled up 45 deg. from the table.
    Sorry if I described it sort of confusingly...
    Just wondering about it. The chuck can also be angled up and has a degree wheel.
    Thanks.

        It sounds like my Pedersen Universal Dividing Head. The bevel gears behind the plate are for coumpound and differential indexing. You can gear it to the table, or for differential indexing, a lever at the top of the plate is fliped up to allow the plate to rotate, this is done by having a shaft that fits in the back of the spindle, a gear train then conects the back of the spindle to the bevel gears which rotate the plate. ( I used this to cut some 127 tooth gears )

          Could of been a set-up fro cutting bevel gears with the pitch line at 45D to the axis
          Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.
