Hey Daryl, some years at I had posted about a Brown and Sharpe dividing head at which you responded that you had the same one. I am missing the indexing Crank assembly and was inquiring if you could send me a picture of yours so I can get an idea how to make one. I’ve seen lots of ways to do it but not on this particular one.
Robert Lazlo suggested you might be interested in a scraping class. I'm in Oklahoma but hypothesize that a class with Forrest Addy in the Dallas area in maybe later April might draw from a large enough area to make it a go. This would be a Sat/Sun workshop, full days costing about $200 - $250 plus incidentals I think.
I've corresponded with machinist groups in Dallas, OKC, and Houston. Are you interested and do you know of others who might be?
