I would have wanted to use the new toys too. I got a dividing head years ago but without any plates. I made my own, not perfect, however, I decided that the holes didn't need to be PERFECTLY placed as if a hole were .010 off, left or right, it would translate into being off in the .001-.0001deg of error. Your stuff is very nice. I was looking at the smoke stack, does it actually burn someting? Does it run?I made nine gears for the drive and two for the timing. They all worked well except I used the wrong material for one of the timing gears and it was not strong enough so it stripped off some teeth. It was oil impregnated brass which I had in the odds and ends pile and I thought that it did not have much pressure so it would be OK. I made all of the gears, including the one this was to replace using my spin indexer. I could have used the spin indexer again but I had just gotten these dividing plates and I wanted to try them.
