Here is a picture of the outboard end of the phasing indexing ring. the center fits on the shaft of the spindle. the smaller disk turns freely on a brass bushing and locks in place where ever I locate it. the larger disk is fixed to the shaft. The four bolt holes are for attaching the rosette.

This is a picture of the back reverse side of the first. there is a dial and index on both sides.

Here the assembly is installed on the spindle.

Here you can see the primary drive 350 rpm- 2700 rpm. the drive changes over to a back gear set on a jack shaft that will get me down to 35 rpm. I also have a dc drive and gearbox that will drive the sprocket in the picture at down to 3 rpm for rosette work. I plan to use a push pull cable to couple the rosette to a moving cross feed for rose engine. this whole assembly comes off with one set screw when running high rpm’s.
