    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.
