I recently picked up a VN dividing head (couldn't upload a photo). I was able to locate the Table of leads and index table for plates but can't find a instructions/maintenance manual. Does anyone know where I can locate or download one? The only problem that I have with the unit is the spring plunger on the crank. There appears to be a burr or something keeping the pin from engaging the plate. I'd like to take the plunger apart for repair but cannot figure out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

I am in the process of purchasing parts for one. Do you have any documentation to share?

Bill,
The only documentation that I was able to find is the Table of Leads.
What VN dividing head do you have and what parts are you trying to buy?

Bill,
It does look like the mechanism to attach and turn the dividing plates are missing from your head. I don't know if you will find a replacement, other than buying another complete head. I am attaching the Van Norman Accessories Catalog so you can see what the complete head looks like.
Good Luck with your search.

Thanks for the file. I am hoping to get it operational with shop made parts. Originals would be great but hand made can make it work.

Sorry, I don't have the same dividing head that you do. I have the 10" vertical head. I don't know what size gear you need other than you need to have it so 40 turns of the crank turns the work 1 full revolution.
