    Exclamation Looking for a Troyke Rotary Table Dividing Accessory Kit

    Looking for a Troyke Rotary Table Dividing Accessory Kit, as seen of page 4 of this brochure - TROYKE BROCHURE

    Have a BH-12 that I want to use horizontally more accurately than with solely the degree dial.

    Let me know what you have and what you want for it. Thank you.

    Addendum - short of actually finding one, if someone has one but is opposed to selling it, I would pay to rent it for short period to use it and then make a copy. I had started making the plates to do so years ago, but never got around to finishing them or making the rest of the bits. Now I have a need for the kit...

    Wild suggestion, but can you use a CNC indexer? You can pick up a quality used 8-10" one for a couple grand and they are dirt simple to program and use, even on a manual machine.

    I would think the accuracy would be as good or better than anything Troyke.

    Thanks Garwood. I appreciate the thought and effort. I have actually considered coupling our stand alone Haas programmable indexer to the Troyke's input shaft and telling the Haas H5C to drive the Troyke, but the reality is that this would take just as long or more than fitting the dividing plates to the rotary. I need to index a high number with fairly good accuracy, and it needs to be done on a plate measuring about 27" in diameter. I have a sub plate/fixture plate for the BH-12 that will hold this nicely. Just need a way to index it well.

    Thanks Cata, but I am not looking for a whole rotary table. I am looking for a Dividing accessory kit for a Troyke.

    At this point, I'll probably just go ahead and make the plates I had already started, and then make the sector arms from scratch.

    If someone does want to sell or rent one, feel free to contact me through the forum, or by our contact page HERE

    I can only hope Zahnrad was able to finish what he started 5 years ago. I'm only chiming in now because it turns out the dividing plates he needed come available all the time just about everywhere - but nobody knew. They are the infamous no name doublesided '371' & '372' indexing plates. Happy hunting.

    I found some plates on E-Bay with a center hole big enough and made an adapter for mine. I have never seen a true troyke set come up. I've managed to make a couple of gears and a few splined shafts with my set up.

    I have a couple of NOS plates I need to dig out, I have no idea what they fit or how to tell.

    Ok, that's funny. I have been wondering what these plates fit for years. I have a Troyke BL-18 but no clue what else I would need. Or to be honest as I have a 12" Bridgeport with the plates probably not going to use them. Not sure atm.

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for the heads up to a few people, letting me know to check in. That job obviously made it out the door by now and I did make a few of the parts needed for the Troyke, but never did get to installing the holes in the blank plates I made. At this point in my life, time is the most important currency and I'd prefer to spend it in the air than making Troyke parts. So if someone wants to sell a Troyke set up, I'd still be willing to consider it. Thanks.
