I have a Myford dividing attachment that I got with my Super7 when I
bought it .
I was wondering if anyone has made a base plate or similar to enable the
attachment to be used on a milling machine .
I was thinking of a base that would allow the attachment to swivel in
the vertical plane to about 45deg.
Mounting the head could be either by the 1" bar that supports the tail
centre or the side plate fixture that it used to fix the attachment to
the lathe cross slide.
Got a few rough sketches on paper but if some one has already done this
I would hate to re-invent the wheel.
I have a Taiwanese mill similar to Graham Howes' mill
that mine is floor mounted rather than on a bench and thought it
would be cost effecvtive to make a base plate mounting for the Myford
attachment rather that buy another dividing head.I'm sure the Myford
attachment would be sufficient for my needs.
I've never put it to use on the lathe .
Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
