Hello all.

I apologies if this subject has already being covered.

I own a small vertex 6” dividing table ( HV6 I think ) and am looking for a way to be able to use the 3 supplied plates to turn the table a certain angle..

Ie.. how many turns + holes to rotate the table say 33.5° or can I not be that exact ?

Maths is not my strongest subject so ideally a simple solution if there is one..

Thanks in advance.

1 turn of crank on your Vertex = 4 deg = 240 minutes

33.5 deg = 2010 minutes

Turns of crank = minutes/240 = 2010/240 = 8 3/8

3/8 =6/16

You have a 16 hole plate

8 complete turns of crank+ 6 spaces in 16 hole circle = 33.5 deg exactly

Note: that will be 7 holes between sector arms on your 16 hole plate


Hope that helps

Not sure if I'm answering the question but this site (search 'HV6' has a link to this table.

I'm too busy at the moment to think about how to calculate angles like 33.5 degrees but I'm sure it's possible provided there's actually an approximation close enough given a particular table and wheels.

If no-one else can provide the answer I'll have a go later.

edit: And D Hanna posted the answer while I was typing!
