Works for me, too.
And now I know where I've been going wrong. Don't push the tool; pull it. :doh:

It's no wonder that used lathes are crap. It's one thing to use a lathe as a micro shaper to draw the rules, quite another to pound on it to emboss numbers.

I've never made a graduated dial, but I'd think that a holding and indexing jig wouldn't be too much to make. Especially since it only needs visual alignment of the numbers.

I have to agree with you about hammering on work in the lathe, Alan. I've made the odd dial or two (and one was indeed odd, with 84 divisions) and have knocked up simple MDF jigs to hold the punches.

One dial was small enough to fit in the bench vice on its jig, so I could press the numbers in. If hammering, I find it hard to apply a light thump to 1 and 7, and heavier equal whacks to the other numbers. In the vice I could just turn the handle round to the same place each time to get reasonably consistent depths.

Good idea with the vise, Andy.  I have a heck of a time getting nice numerals whacking them with a hammer.
Would never do that to my headstock bearings!

It's a nice article, ('cept for the whacking part), and seems to be up again, using the second link in Darren's original post.  Wasn't there first time I looked some weeks ago.
