Looks good Alistair. I have the 8 inch version by Vertex and it works great. I was pretty impressed by the quality when I got it. Good luck with yours and have fun.

She looks like a beauty, I just got mine about two months ago and there is something you should be aware of, if you put in a bunch of rotary table time and are turning in one direction when you stop cranking the handle the entire table looks as though it takes off in the opposite direction, so much so that i swore it was for real and clamped down the table locks! Show your friends and have them do it and it'll help you break in the worm gear.... (its best to invite your simple friends over for this) ((wonder how many times iowolf has been invited to these kind of parties?)) have fun.

That is identical to the one I have. They are very well made.

When using it for the first time to cut some slots, I found the table was shaking. After a tune-up on the table to base adjustment screw and the worm and pinion clearance, it now works like a charm.

I recently found a set of dividing plates and a tailstock on sale at our local Busy Bee here in Canada (they are similar to Chronos). It was a different make (mainland Chinese) but was fairly well finished. Everything worked fine except for the hole spacing between the plates and the hub so I drilled three new holes in the hub and voila, I have a working unit. I had taken the hub to the store to verify the compatability.

Happy chipmaking with your new accessory.
