Default Looking at a dividing head

A L-W Chuck dividing head came across my radar. It needs a good cleaning up. No chuck with it.

Question is the spindle is 2 1/4" diameter with a 10 tpi external thread. What are my options for chuck mounting?

Looks like I can fit up to a 10" chuck.

Not that I'm one who should be giving out advise on this but.... I would go by the three "P's" Price Price Price
what can you buy a complete dividing head off flebay for and what will that one cost you before and after you buy a chuck

I picked up one on flebay for 320 shipped... American made complete with a chuck a plate and 6 dividing plates...

Got a picture or a link--that sounds awfully cheap for a dividing head...

What are you going to do with the dividing head anyway? A rotary table is a lot more versatile and, unless you're
doing stuff that requires really accurate divisions, should be plenty good enough...

Possible uses? Gear cutting, make sprockets or cut external splines.

It's sold to me as a project. Only one dividing plate. It's missing the indexing arm and pin.

I at least think it's a fair deal and with some elbow grease and a little machining I can get a useable dividing head out of it.

I think I could make the indexing arm on the Gorton mill.

Looks like even imported dividing heads start at $300+

Spindle has a #10 B&S internal taper.

I do plan on a rotary table.
Already have some involute gear cutters.

Search the web for a 2-1/4"-10 chuck backing plate, then you mount a flat back chuck to the plate.

we have this thread.

About 35 degrees and was raining earlier. Now sleet and had to detour on way home due to an accident on a bad hill. When I got out of car to talk with officer, found out how slick the road was trying to walk on it.
