    Default Walter dividing head - SHU 4

    Hi
    I have been looking this Walter dividing head SHU 4 but sadly doesn't have the carrying plate for a chuck. Is here someone that has this dividing head and would help me by measuring that tapered plate for the chuck. I would like to know before I buy it if it's possible to easily build this replacement part... Thank you

    If that's a standard SK40 taper (I think 7:24) then it might be possible to purchase an SK40 backing plate and easily adapt it to the dividing head.

    I think this is not a sk40 taper...looks more like a shortened Morse, but I'm afraid that it's unique because the price tag is enormous 😲

    Hi Fastrider,

    some years ago I had a dividing head "Walter VTHU-4".
    Before I sold it, I made a drawing of the flange.

    Rename the file
    from "TK-Futterflansch.png.zip"
    to "TK-Futterflansch.png"

    The other tool is nothing special: it's a inner hex wrench.

    Cheers,
    Karl


    P.S.: Measures in the drawing are in mm

    I bought one several years ago and still haven't had it all the way apart yet (no need). It came set up for Index B42 collets, but I haven't tried popping out the collet taper sleeve. Presumably the external taper on that sleeve is the same as what you're looking for. I will spend a bit of time this weekend with a plastic hammer and see if I can get it out.

    Default Walter dividing head - SHU 4

    Iím reasonably sure this is from a Walter dividing head and could be readily adapted. The largest part of the taper is 45.90 mm. Plate diameter is 120mm.
    I can add another picture if that would help. And yes, Iím willing to sell it, I am however in the US.

    I may be interested in this if the op passes, do have a picture of the front, and how much?

    Itís sort of co-owned and I think Iíll have to put it on eBay either way. Iíll give it some thought.

    Hi Stradbash
    You are a bit far for me, and I need at least 160mm diameter because I have a 160 chuck. Thanks anyway will try to reproduce one for myself with the help of CharlyDE's drawing. Will you suggest to make it out of cast iron...I somehow don't like to work with it because it makes such a mess

    Do we have anybody that owns this dividing head...today I finally got it and have some problems...as far as I noticed it doesn't have quick indexing...also it's awkward that you need to hold the second lever while you try to rotate stiff indexing disk
