Dividing Engine | Time and Navigation

This machine permitted the automatic and highly accurate division of a circle into degrees and fractions of degrees of arc. Invented and made by Englishman Jesse Ramsden in the 1770s, the machine ultimately led to mass production of precision octants and sextants and gave British manufacturers dominance in the field of marine instruments for decades.
