I’ve googled it, binged it too. I haven’t had any good results. Maybe it’s called something else? I’m looking for a chart for a 48 position indexing wheel.

What I want is a chart that shows me which positions to use if I want to divide a turning into equal parts.

Imagine a clock face, with 48 hours, instead of 12. Something I can print out, and keep near the lathe.

I am familiar with using an index wheel, I need a reference chart.

Thanks!

Can you make one? every position would be 7.5 degrees.

Thanks. Tom! I think I will have to make one. I’m surprised that I can’t find one.

Thanks, lew! I don’t think I have Excel, at least I can’t find it on this computer.

I did see Try Microsoft Office for 60 days. It might be in there.

If you can’t get what you want from Excel, let me know; with a good description or a freehand sketch, I can turn out something presentable and accurate with Autocad.

Here’s what I came up with using MS Paint. Thanks for the offer.
