would an angle plate bolted to the side provide enough extension for the dividing head?

It's possible or a stiff enough plate on top deck the extension I saw before was a right angle that fit on the front.

Adev,

i too have the ER32 collets, so when I bought ER40s, I bought from 20 to 30, which go in 2mm steps, which means they aren't too expensive. The advantage with the collet chuck that mounts directly onto the spindle is that it can be made to take through the holder work!

Cheers, Matthew

How do you use dividing head and what sort of thingy that is?

Is that for splines and that sort of stuff?

I have the Atlas 7b shaper that I inherited from my father he didn't have a mill and was using it for his steam engine he was building it seems to work nice but we would love to get a extention for the table so we can use the dividing head.

The manual might improve your outlook on what all this machine can do for you, the list is decent: http://www.vintagemachinery.org/pubs/51/3563.pdf

Thank you all.

I thought that I'm not hot for it, but got two more pictures and it looks almost unused. He told me that it is Atlas 7B and table has no dents, vice and tool holders might be somewhere there to wait for picking up.

Found this one, some basic stuff

I'm going to visit to see it with some money in my pocket.
