This spreadsheet allows you to easily identify a suitable number of holes and turns for dividing with any indexing head.
The spreadsheet has been produced by Christopher Taylor.
To use it, enter the worm ratio for the table at the top and the number of teeth/divisions required.
Choose any convenient solution that offers a whole number of holes in the right hand column.
If your dividing discs have different numbers of holes, youi can change the numbers in the left hand column.
