This is what happens when you buy a rotary table too big . So make sure your`s will fit correctly when you buy one for your new toy. Have a good day I did not.

Lane, please clamp the mill to the rotary table before doing any rotary milling. JIM

That's pretty funny...

Does that Kurt have the anglock feature?

A Sherline rotable might barely work.

Harbor Freight sells a 3 inch one as does New England Brass and Tool, IIRC

That's a fine little mill Lane. Do you ever use it to actually make small parts?

I did once . But don`t want to mess it up . So it sits in the dinning room. That is my legacy.

Looks like a reason to make a Lanausau 2" rotary table to go with the mill. That would be a fun project but may require a trip to the optometrist.
