  • Another Tilt Table Mini-Pallet

    Was eyeballing a discarded press plate half-round die base, and made an attempt at a tilt table.
    For mill table, mill vice, surface grinder, etc.

    Mating pivot came from some oil pipe drill stem, bored out, then sectioned. Screws at each end locka de tilt. No precision angle setups here...a
    cheapo digital angle gauge (like a Wixey) suffices.

    That's really neat.

    Now, where do we get those "discarded press plate half-round die bases"?????

    And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
    You will find that it has discrete steps.

          Oops. Prior photos did not reflect final addition to tilt: an added tilt-locking cap screw and slot to one end. Because was leery milling forces would overcome
          just the two pivot-point flat head screw-tightening scheme. Also, for some range of angles, two adjustable parallels may be used to prevent
          surprise table top movement.
