Thank you for your trouble, this is indeed what I had in mind save that it was Vertex not Soba.

Some good advice in the thread concerned although it would take some patience to cut one tooth and do a dummy 360 deg run on a gear with a lot of teeth (might save some gnashing, of course!).

The Vertex HV6 used to be supplied under a number of different marques. The one supplied by Myford looked just like mine, with a Myford badge instead of Vertex.

The spreadsheet was made up to cover the errors and omissions in the Vertex HV6, with a 90:1 ratio.

The HV 6 chart could be used to check that supplied with any other 90:1 ratio table, as long as the Division Plates are the same, in terms of numbers of holes.

If your table has a ratio other than 90:1, amending one of the formulae from 90 to the ratio of your table should result in a set of readings for yours.

I am not a mathematical genius, far from it, so it should be easy for anyone else, as long as you can use EXCEL.

I’m mildly amused that most seem to rely on tables. Once a circle on the plate has been selected (it must be a factor of the tooth count required) the total number of spaces in the 90, or any other number of, turns is a simple calculation - followed by dividing by the result by the tooth count of the gear required, to find how many holes need to be moved per tooth.

I always sort out my own rounds and spaces by calculation, as it is more reliable than relying on someone else's table.🙂 OK, I often just work out full and part turns separately, without the aid of a calculator, but the result is the same. I don’t cut that many different gears anyway.

Won’t make any difference as to which Nick buys. We don’t even know if he would be using ‘all the gizmos’ for gear cutting or just expecting more for less money at the same quality.

I have two older (Taiwanese) Vertex tables - one has three slots and the other four. I think I prefer the 4 slotted one - simply because it offers more clamping options. Nothing more.

Nick was asking in 2016, hopefully he has bought something by now.

Yes, the whinge should’ve been put on another thread, not a continuation of a previous thread?

Au contraire ... I see the ‘whinge’ as a direct and relevant response to the opening question.

I have never felt confident about the etiquette of posting to a stale thread. The US Tormek forum puts up a warning in red if you try to post after 120 days.

It seems like good practice for the OP to report the result of the issue concerned giving the opportunity for the thread to be closed.
