Re: * Various Shop-Made Tools Page 37

These examples of fine work done in a home shop, gives me great inspiration and ideas to tackle more than thought possible !
I especially like the lathe dividing device .. page 37 scroll down to :
I've never seen a method to divide each degree into minutes like that !
Remarkable, I don't know who the maker (davycrocket) .
If you were so inclined you could also use this concept to make a dividing head / rotary table for your mill too.
