Index / Degree Wheel Atlas lathe

Okay, I’m at it again and need to be able to quickly drill holes in a array. All without having to use my Cnc machine or printer. I was thinking I would build a indexing wheel and use my lathe. While the complete installation is not done. The wheel / plate  is. I may polish it up later. But for now. Here is the plate. Aluminum 0.250 x 10″ 0.d. Center hole is 1″
Drawn up  and coded in Cad / CamBam) .

    I’ve been looking for a nice index wheel for my wood lathe. Do you sell the wheel shown for the Atlas Lathe?

      Scott, Sorry no I dont. this wheel was a one off for my personal use. Thanks for the compliments.

    Why do you have the spokes offset? Just for cosmetic reasons?

    1. Floor Sweeper says:

      Steve, Purely cosmetic.

    Also since you drew it up in cad, any chance you could send me the software file, so I could take a piece of plate somewhere locally and have it either machined or made up on a water jet? Thanks

      I’m glad to send you the file. I’ll have to locate it first. my only condition is you send me a few pics of your completed version!
