Upgrade to a Universal Divider

Dividing plate set for indirect dividing:

  • The spindle is positioned via dividing plates that have several concentric hole pattern
  • Using so-called shears (two pointers rotating around the crank shaft) simplifies positioning through several crank rotations, since counting between holes on the divider plate is not necessary
  • The user only has to count the number of full rotations
  • Benefit: Many divisions can be performed with only a few divider plates, higher accuracy is achieved by using a reduction worm gear, which causes a high-resolution continued rotation of the crank
