I divide my round by drawing cross hairs trough the center, then I estimate the center of the quarters, then the with dividers placed at say 3:00 ,like on a clock, and on the estimated center point I scribe a line. Then I repeat with my center on say 6:00 the intersection of the resulting arcs drawn through to the center is a section. Just repeat on the smaller portion. Divides a circle up nicely.

I'm Hungry after all that cookin talk.
Just wanted to warn the magnet guys. I took an ole speaker apart to get the magnets out and would use them for sticking work orders or strech out list to the shear. I don't know what they are made of but it's hard. I noticed I was getting some small chips from guys just flipping the magnet back up on the shear. Well I got to wondering if that stuff could be pushed into the shear blades buy some galv. So I quit using magnets close to the shear. Any thoughts???

Ahh that's all un-necessary. What was I thinking? C=circumferance... C(.382683) or there abouts will give you the chord length for 8 divisions. There's a whole table of coefficients for any needed amount of segments in my Machinists handbook.
