View Full Version : Rotary Indexing table for the Milling Machine

This is a great piece of tooling for your milling machine. It fits into the vise and can generate radii very quickly simply by indicating the center and then moving the handle. DO NOT CLIMB MILL. Conventional milling is the best and only option.
Eliminate the need for lifting that extremely heavy rotary table onto your mill. I hope you like it. dondoerner@sympatico.ca

Is is possible that there some photos missing from your post?

Curious to see a photo. Generally anything secured in the vise is less rigid than the same, bolted directly to the machine table.

Enough clever solutions exist (even one illustrated in a pre 40's machining book) that one needn't lift the rotary table dividing head, vise, etc. by hand.

I'm very curious to see your design...I could use something like it.

Not only did he forget to attach the photos, he forgot to mention that he has the plans in PDF format for sale for $10, which is what George's post is referring to.

Thanx for the info, Ian.
I guess the OP is trying to be stealthy with his spamming.
Interesting video, I think I'll stick to using a rotary table.
