Deviding head or rotary table?
Posted 30 August 2018 - 06:02 PM
I plan on doing a 22 first and possibly a .357 later on if I am up to it.
I’m leaning towards a deviding head as the angle is adjustable so it would be a little more versatile. However I have never used one so I figured I should ask before purchasing one. Thanks Chris.

If you absolutely decide on a dividing head over a rotary table with indexing plates, pay a little more for a good one. I got a cheaper super spacer that came with a built in wobble that will haunt you for as long as you have it. There were only a couple of times that I needed an angle other than 90 degrees but that was me.

I can run up to a .125 cutter with the spindle that is currently on the machine. It is a 1942 gorton pantograph converted to CNC with a NSK spindle that runs up to 50k rpm. I’m building a new machine now with a larger work envelope so I could possibly use it to make some of the other parts but I will have to come up with another spindle to use as my current one is for very fine delicate work and I need to keep it accurate.
