Scored a near mint Brown and Sharpe dividing head with matching numbered tailstock and all gears. Broken was the mount for the pin plunger and plunger/arm missing. Hopeful but doubt these pieces are around somewhere. If someone has a better picture of original, could try and replicate. First photo mine, second pic borrowed from site shows circled pieces needed.

I have a Cincinnati #2 Horizontal I am going to try and adapt this to. Would consider a swap for like-conditioned Cincinnati divider with gears to help with setup

You didn’t mention which B&S head. Is the part you’re looking for like this? This was spare from a Yuasa clone of a B&S 0 semi-universal.

No it is the B&S universal #2. There is one circled in the second picture from another post. It is a flat bar that is held by broken piece. If I can't find one or trade for like kind Cincinnati, The type you show would prob be easier to fab. Thanks for reply!

Like John pointed out Brown & Sharpe (uniquely?) put their head on the opposite end of the table. If you think you will ever want to gear the head to the table you will want a Cincinnati head.
