Dividing by Harold Hall

Book Description

Faced with the prospect of machining a gear or gears for a project, many model engineers will be discouraged and will turn elsewhere for their next model. This need not be so, for the principles underlying gear cutting and many other aspects of engineering where an accurate division of circles is required are explained in depth in this book. Radial work on a metalworking lathe, such as the cutting of gearwheels or the drilling of holes on a set radius, calls for a method of precisely spacing the cuts. This skill is known as Dividing. The principles underlying this aspect of engineering are explained in depth in this book. It covers the subject of Dividing, dealing with the many methods that can be adopted: from simple applications without specialised equipment to the use of a semi-universal dividing head and a rotary table. The mathematical aspects of dividing are also covered but at a level that will be understood easily by a model engineer. Dividing equipment is relatively expensive, so two fully-detailed designs are included for dividing heads: a basic unit and the equivalent of a commercial semi-universal head.

Milling Machine by Harold Hall Milling Machine, Paperback (July 2011)

This book deals with choosing and using a milling machine and its accessories - the cutters, cutter chucks, workpiece clamps, vices, angle plates, dividing heads, rotary tables, boring heads and other minor items. The usage of each machine and accessory is described in sufficient detail for the vast majority of uses in the home workshop.

Metalworker's Workshop by Harold Hall Metalworker's Workshop, Paperback (February 2010)

When Harold Hall was Editor of Model Engineer's Workshop magazine, he was surprised by how just so many of his readers had no access to a workshop at home, or even at college. His new book is a complete guide to building or converting and equipping a workshop space.

Model Engineers' Workshop Projects by Harold Hall Model Engineers' Workshop Projects, Paperback (April 2007)

A project book including 18 designs for workshop equipment based on the author's popular articles published in Model Engineer's Workshop magazine. The projects are in themselves satisfying exercises in metalworking that once completed will make valuable additions to the model engineer's range of equipment.

Tool and Cutter Sharpening by Harold Hall Tool and Cutter Sharpening, Paperback (February 2006)

Sharpening workshop tools is one task that is least understood by the majority of workshop owners. This book illustrates how most sharpening tasks can be carried out using an off hand grinder and a few simply made accessories to a standard comparable to that achieved using much more sophisticated equipment.
